The loudest animals in Costa Rica!

Where does it live?:

Howler monkeys live in rainforests in the lowlands and mountain habitats of Costa Rica. They can live up to 7,000 feet in elevation and can be found all over Central America (from southern Mexico to northwestern South America). 

How does it use its environment to survive?:

They rely on eating foliage, such as leaves, flowers and fruits that grow on trees in the rainforest. They also live high up in the canopy of trees so that they can be close to their food source and away from predators that live on the forest floor, like jaguars and pumas. 

What can harm this creature or plant? Are we worried about it?:

Deforestation is the main threat to howler monkeys. As more tourists come to visit Costa Rica, more hotels and restaurants are appearing and contributing to the destruction of natural habitats. However, luckily the Costa Rican government has strict laws preventing deforestation in almost all parts of the country.
