Mandrill populations have suffered drastic declines due to hunting for their meat. Because they travel in large troops and are easily located by their constant grunting and screaming, entire populations are quickly decimated.

As human settlements expand, the mandrills are losing their habitats to logging and clearing for agriculture (2).
