Nothing better than some gibbon love ! 🐵🧡 @myrtlebeachsafari
This little baby is a white-handed gibbon & is sadly critically endangered due to deforestation, & poaching for the black market pet trade. These guys need our help to survive! One of the best ways we can all help is to avoid palm oil that is not sourced sustainably & is grown in Asian forests that gibbons like Suva used to live in! One way everyone can help gibbons is to not support and put pressure on brands such as Pepsi, Heinz, Hershey, Kellogg’s, and many others that still source palm oil from farms that are destroying the habitats of tigers, orangutans, and many other species in the Indonesian rainforest’s despite pledging that they would source palm oil sustainability. #NOTpets#monkeys#ape#gibbon#primates#monkey#monkeysofinstagram
And just like that my big boy is 3!I think when some people come to our place they expect they’re only going to be eating carrot sticks and hummus but it’s about balance so while most of this party food had a healthy twist, it wasn’t all perfect. Because nothing really is and that’s okay. By the way, the roasted pumpkin hummus and veggie sticks weren’t really a hit for 3 yr olds as it turned out... the veggies ended up in our stir fry last night. My sister in-law said the lions face looked like it was out of the Women’s Weekly Birthday Cookbook from 1980. I’d like to think that the party animals appreciated me running with the theme 🦁 😂
“Dear Cuban Kid,
My name is Cyrus. I live in the Bronx. I like to watch the birds when I walk to the bus in the morning. I am the only vegetarian in my family. My favorite animals are tigers, monkeys and bears because although they are viscous creatures, they have a soft side when they get close to a human. What animals do you like? From, Cyrus”
I definitely came here for the
monkeys. This one gripped
my index finger w/ his foot!
🙊 There were hundreds
roaming around the forest.

'A saída de muitos animais da floresta não é um bom sinal. Com as queimadas e o desmatamento das matas próximas aos centros urbanos acabam provocando desequilíbrio ambiental, com isso animais silvestres invadem o perímetro urbano atrás de comida. “Todo animal luta pela sobrevivência, e a ausência de qualquer espécie no seu ambiente natural é a quebra de um elo importante na cadeia alimentar onde espécies mais importantes, disseminadoras de sementes, mantenedoras da floresta começam ser afetadas”
Já faz um mês que tivemos a oportunidade de ver sagüis de wied (Callithrix kuhlii) de pertinho. Esse bichinho simpático ocorre na Bahia, e só.
É impressionante a fauna que se pode encontrar em poucos dias dentro de florestas bem protegidas.
