World Monkey Day 2022:
World Monkey Day is celebrated worldwide on 14th December, every year.
- Monkey Day has been created to celebrate monkeys and other non-human primates.
- A primate is any mammal of the group that includes lemurs, lorises, tarsiers, monkeys, apes, and humans.
- It is a great day when it comes to raising awareness about different types of monkeys and primates around the world, as well as the issues they face and how we can help them.
- Monkeys, also known as simians, live all over the world.
- More than 250 species of monkeys populate Africa, Central America, South America, and Asia.
- Monkeys are divided into two categories– Old World monkeys and New World monkeys.
- Old World monkeys are native to Africa and Asia while New World monkeys are indigenous to the Americas, but their homes are not the only ways in which they are different.
