Sad Fact: Apes Not Rising

Twenty five million years ago, and Governor Huntsman is right that Earth existed 25 million years ago, 40 species of apes roamed, according to a column in today's NYT.

Now just 5 species of apes remain: Chimpanzees, Gorillas, Orangutans, Bononbos, and Gibbons. Habitat destruction, hunting, and disease threaten extinction for all.
