Baby howler monkey dies in Laguna de Apoyo II

In continuation of the previous blog, this baby mantled howler monkey apparently died from a fall not provoked by humans, although we constantly observe people throwing rocks at monkeys in Laguna de Apoyo Nature Reserve. We need more volunteers, researchers, park guards and strategic and tactical support for environmental education in the area to protect our local fauna. See the video below produced by David McKnight. The staff at Estacion Biologica have saved the skin from the cadaver for genetic studies. We also made a report to the Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environment of Nicaragua.
