This year Manu Wildlife Center has celebrated its 23rd year of existence. Surrounded of 1,000 hectares of protected forest, which are private. It has 16 km by trails and for the first time we have spotted a new specie called Goeldi’s Monkey or Goeldi´s Marmoset (Camillico goeldii)
Hiking through areas of impenetrable forest with many lianas and swampy areas, we found a group of 8 Goeldi's Monkey individuals along with a group of Emperor Tamarin (Saguinus Imperator).
The Goeldi's Monkey is a small black monkey of 8 to 9 inches body length and 10-12 inches tail length. The habitat of the monkey is in the Amazon of Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Colombia and Brazil.
It was first described in 1904 by the Swiss naturalist Emil August Goeldi.
Now, there are 11 species of monkeys you can see in Manu Wildlife Center
