Javan lutung (Trachypithecus auratus) is one of the protected animals. But their population and distribution are increasingly threatened to extinct due to habitat destruction and feed scarcity. Moreover, this animal is still hunted for commercial purposes or for its meat.
In Java, the presence of this animal is in the vicinity of certain forest.
Although located in forest conservation, this animal continues to struggle with the frequent harassment from human activities.
They are often hunted down, stolen, consumed so that the population is diminishing.
