I´m a biologist interested in animal interactions, and a big fan of wildlife photography. I love birds and mammals (especially primates).

Unfortunately I couldn´t stay too long in Perú , but I was told some native people have fought against this cruel explotation. However, local police hasn´t payed attention to them because it´s a distant zone. There are not wildlife rescue groups in this zone
Hi! This is the cruel reality I found last year in Amazonas, Perú , actually in a peruvian zone so close to Leticia,Colombia.Different restaurants offer wildlife as part of the menu, and they exhibit wild animals in cages (birds such as parrots, toucans,etc; monkeys such as "titi monkeys", snakes and cocodriles as far as I saw) .It´s a shame they don´t appreciate what they have, the amazing biodiversity this ecosystem mantains. This monkey is called "Marimonda" , and you can see the pain in its eyes , the wish for freedom; it has a leash because the "owners" didn´t want it to scape.
