And we enjoy watching them. Howler monkeys are not particularly fast or agile, but they do swing, hang by their tails, and occasionally, leap from one branch to another. Not only do we watch them: they watch us, too, often with suspicion. The howler monkeys don't like humans much.

FUNDECI/GAIA conducts research and conservation actions in Laguna de Apoyo Nature Reserve, with the intention to protect the howler monkeys and other wildlife found here. Please consider working with us as a volunteer, researcher, or donor. You can help in many ways.
