Conservation and tourism of endengered wild animals

Yunnan snub-nosed monkeys are found only in a very small part of Yunnan Province, China and form a complex society that is called as multi-level society. It is estimated that there are about 1,000 individuals, and they are on the verge of extinction, but they have been designated as a national priority wildlife species for protection. In recent years, with the help of the Lisu people, it is being explored as a sustainable tourism.
