Tamarin Rescued!

Yesterday we received a call for the Regional Environmental Authorities in Moyobamba, asking our help in rescuing a tamarin (Leontocebus sp.), which appeared to have been abandoned and tied to an avocado tree in the city.

Together with officials from the regional authority, our team caught and untied the animal, transporting it to the nearby offices of the authorities. The animal is now receiving its veterinary evaluations, while we try and find a suitable rescue centre for re-homing. We hope that this sad tale will at least serve as a reminder to everyone that wild animals are not pets!

Meet “Chewie”

Meet our latest rescued baby monkey “Chewie”. Chewie is a critically endangered “San Martin Titi” monkey who will stay in our care until he is old enough to travel to a suitable rescue center. In the wild, Chewie would have remained with his family group until he was old enough to find a mate, but unfortunately, he will miss out on that vital experience. Chewie is in good health but has scars on his chin and the top of his head.
