Golden Lion Tamarin Extension

Witness One of the World's Most Exciting Conservation Success Stories!
At the Golden Lion Tamarin Conservation Project, learn about the successful rehabilitation of wild populations of these delicate tiny primates returning from the brink of extinction. East of Rio de Janeiro, the Poço das Antas Biological Reserve is home to all of the approximately 1,000 surviving golden lion tamarins. Found only in the lowland Atlantic rainforest of Brazil, these small reddish-orange primates were nearly gone a generation ago, their habitat decimated by ever-enroaching agriculture and logging. View these exquisite creatures up close while touring the project, and meet the biologists dedicated to their conservation. We'll also track them on a guided walk through the forest to observe those that have been reintegrated into their wild natural habitat.

Trip Highlights

  • See endangered golden lion tamarins during a visit to one of Brazil's top biological reserves 
  • Meet the biologists working at the Golden Lion Tamarin Conservation Project who are dedicated to saving the species and reintroducing it to the wild
  • Walk in the Atlantic rainforest, one of the earth's most threatened ecosystems, with just three percent of its original expanse remaining
