Survival is difficult during the harsh winter months but the Golden Monkeys are resourceful. They have survived over one million years. Deforestation, however, presents a real threat and danger to their survival as it exposes them to hunters and destroys their food supply and habitat. China has taken steps to protect them, including their designation as an endangered species.
