We never thought, that something like that would happen!
But it happened and is happening:
We are sad to tell you that we closed our doors due to the whole situation in the country!
Its not only for the safety of our people, but as well for the safety of the animals we are working with, our nearest relatives, non-human primates!
So we are really sorry to tell you that we will be closed for the next 14 days! We will keep you informed for any further informations!
sherlock, one of our female spider monkeys
Since one week now one of our Spider Monkeys found her way into freedom!
We managed her first step of liberation in collaboration with the University of Ikiam, Dr. Sara Alvarez Solas, one of the professors of the University, The Mohamed Bin Zayed Organisation, Loop Abroad and with help of our staff members Blanka Mallow, Mauricio Guzman (our current vet), Edison Canelos, Javier Canelos and our current researchers Pablo Licuy and Maria Costa Garcia.
Our team of volunteers, the wonderful people that took such good care of her!
Her name is Sherlock, she is a female and 3 years old.
Outside we have a free living group of Spider Monkeys, the next weeks and months are very important to see if she can adapt herself to the world outside and form part of the group.
