According to the World Wildlife Foundation, “they have adapted to life in the trees, with shorter legs and stronger forelimbs for climbing, giving them somewhat of the appearance of a cross between a kangaroo and a lemur.”
The main threats to this adorable creature are hunting and deforestation.
Wildlife organizations like WWF work to keep the species alive by "reducing deforestation and loss of habitat caused by illegal logging, . . . raising awareness of habitat loss and the effects of hunting, promoting and managing protected areas, [and] reducing illegal hunting through programmes."
