The golden monkeys in Shennongjia Nature Reserve are an independent subspecies of the Sichuan golden monkeys and are covered with golden or grey hairs. Because of their rarity, golden monkeys are on the list of national first-class protected animals. The population of the golden monkeys in the Shennongjia Nature Reserve has now grown from 600 to more than 1,300 because of the improving ecological environment and effective protection. As of this date, a golden monkey research center in Longtan of Shennongjia has welcomed eight newborn monkeys in 2011.
