Chimpanzees

Why they're in trouble: 

Chimpanzees are primarily threatened by habitat destruction, which amplifies the impacts of poaching and disease. They are native to Central and West Africa, where an estimated 80 percent of forest cover has been lost to logging, 'slash and burn' agriculture for palm oil and other crops as well as mining for gas, oil and minerals used in electronics. As their habitat shrinks, chimpanzees become more vulnerable to human-borne disease such as Ebola and are more likely to be caught by poachers for bushmeat harvest and for the pet trade.
