Well, from the article, it appears as if the researchers are trying to get hold of some genetic material from the monkeys in question, as opposed to
killing one and vivisecting it, to gain a better understanding of the differences between the species they believe they have discovered, and the other
species around it.
This is genuine science here, and as the article points out, comes out of a region which is fantastically biodiverse, but is difficult to do science
in, because of the delicacy of the political situation in the region, and the risk that poses to researchers, and indeed the wildlife itself!
