The Yunnan snub-nosed monkey (Rhinopithecus bieti) is the primate living at the highest altitude in the world, and only distributes in China. It was categorized as endangered in the 2003 red list of threatened species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. The monkey is now under first class protection in China. Due to hunting, deforestation, and local livelihood development, the snub-nosed monkey was ever believed extinct. By decades' effort by government, researchers, NGOs, and local activist, the monkey was re-found and the population restored and increased gradually to more than 3000 - most of them distribute in the Northwest of Yunnan and few in Southwest of Tibet.
