According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List, not all of these animals are classified as endangered, as the zoo's post claims. The tufted capuchin monkey, or as specified by Avilon, Sapajus apellais marked as "Least Concern," which means "the species is widespread and there are currently no major threats resulting in a significant overall population decline that would warrant listing in a threatened category." The palm cockatoo (Probosciger aterrimus), the snapping turtle (Chelydra serpentinaare also marked "Least Concern." The yellow-footed turtle (Chelonoidis denticulata) is, however, marked as vulnerable; whereas the red-footed turtle (Chelonoidis carbonaria) is not on the Red List. Of course, that does not make the animals any less worthy of recovery efforts.
