Increasing Awareness

    Newer Older

    the Golden Lion Tamarin is part of the AZA's Species Survival Plan to manage and conserve a select and typically threatened or endangered species population. A protected habitat has been developed at a reserve in Brazil, and the Golden lion tamarin has become a source of pride to Brazilians and a national symbol of conservation awareness.

    Their partially webbed fingers help give them a firm hold on tree limbs, and their fingers are almost as long as their forearms! The extremely long tails are not prehensile but help them balance as they move across vines and jump from branch to branch.
