CIWY (Comunidad Inti Warra Yassi) – The Amazon, Bolivia March- April 2017
This little 6 mph old howler monkey was rescued from the pet trade. His mother killed, he was sold on the market. Bought and kept like a dog, he’s not used to climbing trees, he does not know how to pick fruits from the tree and eat them…you can see the sadness in his eyes.
Hola Captain! Captain (and his brother Flashman), was given up by someone keeping them as pets until they were 1.5-2 years old, by that time they were too big to handle. Unfortunately, Flashman passed away 2 years ago. I can feel Captain’s sadness. He’s a beautiful and majestic cat, so sensitive, so powerful. Its like he looks into your soul when he’s watching you. Its an amazing feeling!
