New Favorite Day

Jonathan volunteering

imageWelcome to the latest arrival to the Jaguar Rescue Center! This is Chiki Chiki (not sure how she spells her name) and her newborn baby. She is one of the howler monkeys that I have had a chance to work with over the last three months. As part of integrating into the wild, we take her and the other monkeys out to the forest and they choose whether to come back at the end of the day or not. Chiki had been out in the forest for a few days and came back today, having given birth! Holding her and her baby is definitely a memory that I will have forever. At the end of the day, I sat down next to her and she came over with her baby to sit in my lap. Coolest day ever!
