Golden Lion Tamarin by Durotriges

Golden Lion Tamarins from South America are classified as Endangered.
By 1965 numbers were so low that the Poco das Antas Reserve was established in 1975 in an attempt to protect them.

Marwell Zoo is now part of the Tamarin Conservation Programme and several pairs from the zoo have been reintroduced to the wild near the Reserve and are breeding successfully.

This, I think, is one of my best cutouts. I love the golden colour – these little fellas are just so full of life and energy – they are terrific fun to be around. I think one of these days I’ll have to spend a whole afternoon in their enclosure (it’s a walk through) and sit with a tripod. It’ll be interesting to see what they make of me!
