Full Day Golden Lion Tamarin Primate Watching Program

 

In the nearby hills, away from the bustle of Rio de Janeiro, high-pitched whistles pierce the air. Small islands of forest grow in an ocean of pasture land. Up in the trees a brilliant orange-gold flash leaps from one branch to another. Trapped in a narrow strip of forest alongside the interstate highway, the calls of the Golden Lion Tamarin can be heard - the last few hundred on earth. There are 3200 now in the wild, but this is poetic license. This program is doing just that for the Golden Lion Tamarins. Against all odds, the project set out in the 1960s to save the species. The program began in the early 1970s as a collaboration between the United States National Zoological Park-Smithsonian Institution, IBAMA (Brazilian Environment Agency) and the Centro de Primatologia do Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The program, today coordinated by the Brazilian organization Associação Mico-Leão-Dourado, has increased the numbers of GLTs in the wild from 200 to 3200 today. To save the species they are working with local landowners to plant forest corridors so the tamarins can cross between the remaining fragments of their habitat.
