"The Funkiest Monkeys" on Nature airs Wednesday, January 29th at 7 pm

Twenty-five years ago, filmmaker Colin Stafford-Johnson travelled to Sulawesi in Indonesia and fell in love with crested black macaques. These feisty monkeys are beach bums with punk hairstyles, expressive faces, copper-colored eyes and some very unusual habits, making them some of the most charismatic of all monkeys. Learning that their numbers have dropped dramatically, Stafford-Johnson makes a return visit to find out why and to see if he can help.

"The Funkiest Monkeys" on Nature can be seen on Wednesday, January 29th at 7:00 p.m. on channels 3 and 3-1.
