Miss Waldron's Red Colubus

Episode 3 of 5

Rob Newman tells the story of the extinction of Miss Waldron's Red Colobus. If the poaching doesn't kill you, and the deforestation doesn't kill you, then maybe isolation will.

Rob Newman tell the story of a species we've lost forever, and explores our role in their extinction.

Miss Waldron's Red Colobus was a black and russet-coloured West African monkey, living in the treetops in large, sociable troops, when human activity began to encroach on their land, and their way of life.
