MONKEY LIBERATION PROJECT
MONKEY EVOLUTION CENTER
In Akumal Monkey Sanctuary & Rescued Animals live 29 spider monkeys that were rescued from different situations, however the facilities where they are housed are not optimal for them due to their activity, strength and movement instinct. They’re destroying an habitat that was not created for them.
That is why the project seeks to start the construction of a bigger environment that adapts to them, promotes the natural behaviors of the species, but above all, completely conserving the habitat in a natural way, gradually giving way to its release.
Monkey Evolution Center will focus on wildlife enrichment programs and the implementation of a new diet targeting local wildlife nutrition.
HOW IT WORKS?
THE SECOND STEP TOWARDS FREEDOM
1. We are currently studying the members of 3 spider monkey communities to select the most promising primates to participate in this project.
2. When the selection process end, candidates will be placed in a controlled area where they will participate in enrichment programs focused on their survival in the wild and will begin the transition from their diet to local wild fruits and leaves. This new habitat of preparation for their freedom is what we call the Monkey Evolution Center.
TO DO IT POSSIBLE WE NEED
Approximately $45,000 USD
This money is needed to be used in 3 stages of progress to make a hurricane proof enclosure due to the location of the Sanctuary.
Expanding the night shelter. Install meshes on windows, doors and the tunnel that will connect the shelter with this space.
