Hi all!

We were recently contacted by a wonderful organization called Wild Futures based in the UK. They do great work in protecting primates and wild habitats worldwide. They recently released a video hosted and narrated by Stephen Fry who told the story of Joey the capuchin monkey who was caught from the wild and then was shipped to the UK to be kept as a pet. Joey was kept in a tiny cage and had none of psychological or physical needs met however he was rescued and sent to the monkey sactuary where he has learnt to live like a monkey should. To watch the video and to find out what you can do to help primates, please click on the link below and share it with your friend via facebook and twitter.
