The Natuna Island surili (Presbytis natunae) is a species of primate in the family Cercopithecidae. It is endemic to the Indonesian island of Natuna Besar.[1] It was separated from P. siamensis by Groves in 2001.[1] A study published in 2003[3] estimates the population to be less than 10,000 as of 2002, the main threat being heavy logging since 1980.
