In fact, the hunters said, during rainstorms, entire groups of Burmese snub-nosed monkeys tend to sit around in trees with their heads between their knees, sneezing. They can stretch up to 12ft in length. The building of dams requires the opening up of formerly remote forests to roads and transmission lines. Local hunting is also a problem, and better enforcement is needed to combat the illegal international wildlife trade. This work is based on the endangered Burmese Golden Sneezing Snub-Nosed Monkey, whose nose and long tail are the most prominent features of this species. Interviews with the local communities suggest there could potentially be other subpopulations, but their presence is yet to be visually confirmed.
But how these populations have fared since their discovery, the researchers are unsure. He revealed that no illegal logging has occurred within the area inhabited by the monkey since the beginning of this year. People from the area report that it sits with its head directed downwards, hiding its face between its knees when it rains.

Loggers use those dam access routes to transport logs, while also penetrating even more remote areas with rough haul roads.

The dam could have direct consequences for the Imawbum National Park and thus for the species, as reservoir flooding drives agriculture into the high hills encroaching on critical habitat. We want to achieve in the long-term a fully staffed and managed park… a collaborative system working with local communities. This pattern repeats itself today.
