Golden Lion Tamarin, Silva Jardin, Brazil
An amazing conservation story Golden Lion Tamarins are being returned to the Mata Atlantica Rainforest.
Many of these Tamarins were in captivity and have been returned to the wild.
Disconnected parts of the Atlantic Rainforest are being connected with wildlife crossings. The Tamarins are still highly endangered and recently were almost wiped out by Yellow Fever. We needed Yellow Fever vacinnes to visit to protect them (not us!).
