Yellow Fever outbreak in Brazil.
The current Yellow Fever outbreak in Brazil is seriously affecting primate populations there. Howler monkeys are particularly vulnerable to Yellow Fever, and the risk is compounded by the incorrect belief in local populations that killing the monkeys may help prevent its spread. IPS supports the 'Protect our Guardian Angels' campaign, which is working hard to educate and inform people about the issue.
