Saddleback Tamarin

Saguinus fuscicollis


This baby tamarin was abandoned by the family group and adopted by local Yagua villagers.


This baby was found in the Amazon Rainforest. Tamarins range from southern Central America through central South America, where they are found in northwestern Colombia, the Amazon Basin, and the Guianas.


Tamarins are omnivores, eating fruits and other plant parts as well as spiders, insects, small vertebrates and bird eggs.

Wildlife orphan babies are such emissaries. This looks quite lovable, and I'll bet all who meet it are inspired to protect the species.

On day 3 of Amazon Awareness Week, the team came across an abandoned Saddleback Tamarin that had been adopted by local Yagua villagers near Iquitos, Peru. Help spread the word about Amazon conservation so when this baby grows up, there will be plenty of rainforest to play in!

"Tamarins are squirrel-sized monkeys found in tropical rainforests. They are great climbers and active during the day, when they can be found running and jumping through trees."
