Hello, Pedro. To add this to the Primate Watch Mission goo to the top of your page and click on Missions. When that comes up click on Global, then scroll down to find the Primate Watch Mission. Click on it and when it opens, click on Join this misson. Go back to the spotting and on the right hand side you'll see"no mission assigned"; if you click there the Primate Watch Mission should appear for you to click on and the spotting is assigned to that mission. Good luck--it is a perfect spotting.

Pedro, it would be great if you could add more information about this super cool monkey; like a little description, info about their habitat. And also, don't forget to add it to the Primate Watch mission, it is perfect!
