Most are restricted to humid forests, but the Zanzibar red colobus prefers coastal thickets and scrub. Red colobuses are primarily arboreal and are highly sensitive to hunting and habitat destruction, and have been referred to as probably the most threatened taxonomic group of primates in Africa as of 2008, all species except the Central African red colobus are assessed by the IUCN as Endangered or Critically Endangered.

See the Mangrove Swamp & Other Wildlife

The forest also accommodates a large mangrove swamp and a tract of natural forest that is home to a few unique species including the Sykes monkey, bush babies, Ader's duiker, over 50 species of butterfly and 40 species of birds.
