Hi, Iím Matt! Come join me on my journey to learn all about hylobates! The Canisius Ambassadors for Conservation and I went all the way to Indonesia to learn about the best gymnasts in the world so that we could help you learn too!

First things first, what exactly is a hylobate? A hylobate is a mammal (or warm-blooded animal) that is a primate. Primates include prosimians from Madagascar, monkeys, apes, and humans! Within the large group of mammals called primates, hylobates are also called lesser apes, which means that they are closely related to other apes like orangutans, gorillas, and chimpanzees.
