Golden Lion Tamarin Extension

Witness One of the World's Most Exciting Conservation Success Stories!
2 Days From $995
At the Golden Lion Tamarin Conservation Project—WWF's first project in Brazil, established in 1971—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 Poco das Antas Biological Reserve is home to all of the approximately 1,000 surviving golden lion tamarins. Found only in the lowland Atlantic rain forest of Brazil, these small reddish-orange primates were nearly gone a generation ago, their habitat decimated by ever-encroaching agriculture and logging. During our visit, meet project staff members dedicated to the golden lion tamarin's conservation and learn about the latest strides in protecting these exquisite creatures. We'll also track them on a guided walk through the forest to observe those that have been reintegrated into their wild natural habitat.
