South India-Late afternoon. 

We had climbed up a little hill; the soil was very loose and slippery there I saw for the first time at least 30 Lion Tail Macaques, some playing, some nurturing the young ones, some keeping an eye on the surroundings, etc. I was so excited to finally see them in person that I didn’t spend much time observing them from far, but instead, I approached them and started to photograph. I soon realized I was close to an intelligent animal.

When they looked at me, I felt they were questioning what I was doing on their turf. I could, for the first time understand an animal’s facial expressions and body language as though I was dealing with humans. We were speaking an unspoken language.

I was very vigilante around them as they had no fear of humans and were so unpredictable. This one walked a few feet from me very calm, slow and calculated than all of a sudden charged at me; he was very curious he didn’t understand what I was doing there. It was such a human behavior on his part; we also tend to dislike things we don’t understand.

How climate change affects monkeys

Monkeys are primate animals. They mostly depend on leaves and also fruits for sustenance. The CLIMATE CHANGE which leads to El Nino and La Nina events are affecting these primates more because it decides the availability of this sustenance. These events lead to flooding, severe drought, and also storms. This leads to scarcity of food and also water. This, in turn, is a pathway of new diseases that would affect the monkeys.

Even the food that is available has fewer fiber leaves,  meaning the monkey does not get its needed strength. Female Monkeys end up malnourished and also give birth to smaller offspring with less birth rate. These factors contribute to a decrease in population.
