Woolly Monkey Rescue

Yesterday we were very pleased to be able to help the wildlife authorities of San Martin with transport and medical tests for two common woolly monkeys (Lagothrix lagothricha). These victims of illegal wildlife trafficking were being transferred to a rescue centre in Loreto. Thankfully they were given a clean bill of health and we were able to send them immediately. At their new home they will have more space and be able to mix with others of their species, and maybe even return to the wild in the future.
