Tamarin Rescue

Another monkey rescued. this week NPC is helping with the care and transport of a rescued Andean saddle backed tamarin. The animal was confiscated by authorities at the Coral Quemado check point on the highway from the northern Peruvian Amazon to the Pacific coast. Aside from his captivity and capture from the wild he also suffers from a permanent malformation of his jaw, probably the result of a previously broken jaw sustained during capture and that has now set badly. We see animals suffering like this every week, please do not buy wildlife or frequent attractions that use wild animals.
