  • Description


    Our organisation is dedicated to the preservation of the critically endangered Muriqui and Brazilian biodiversity. The Muriqui is the largest primate of the Americas and one of the most endangered primates of the world. Affectionally known as the "Hippy Monkey," this vegetarian monkey lives in the Atlantic Forest in social groups.

    We are currently operating a research center in the region of Ibitipoca, in Minas Gerais. One of the last remaining populations of the Muriqui live here, in a nature reserve that has been dedicated to reforesting the region over the last thirty years.
