While thousands of the latter species have succumbed to the yellow fever outbreak since late last year, most of the muriquis studied by Strier and her colleagues seem to be surviving.[2]Her long-term studies have revealed that muriquis have a lifespan of more than 40 years and she has known some of the individual muriquis in the forest their entire lives.[3]Her lab has a dedicated project established to monitor and preserve the muriquis, which are considered critically endangered and can only be found on Earth in 10 forests in southeastern Brazil.[4]
