In side Africa beauty - Protecting Nigeria's Wildlife

In Southeast Nigeria, there's a rare primate, once thought to be extinct, that lives in one of the oldest primary rainforests in Africa.
Characterized by the deep purple coloring of mature males, the drill monkey is considered endangered, with conservation groups estimating less than 10,000 left in the wild. Find out how researchers and conservationists are teaming up to protect the drill monkey, as well as a little known bat species and the red-capped mangabey monkey, from the threat of human encroachment by building sanctuaries and collecting research.
