Hylobates lar carpenteri

Carpenter's lar gibbon, Hylobates lar carpenteri, is an endangered subspecies of white-handed gibbon, also known as the lar gibbon. It is listed as an endangered species because it is believed to have undergone a decline of more than 50% in the prior three generations due to loss of forest habitat and loss of mature individuals to hunting. The subspecific name honors primatologist Clarence R. Carpenter.
