Cotton-top tamarins are one-pound primates only found in northern Colombia and critically endangered due to deforestation and capture for the illegal pet trade. Proyecto Tití works to secure a long-term future for this charismatic primate, conducting field research, protecting and restoring their forest home, and implementing education, awareness and income-generating programs to reduce unsustainable use and exploitation of forest resources for subsistence.

Watch this session with Rosamira Guillen from the 2021 Global Biodiversity Festival to learn more about this unique and important species.

The 2021 Global Biodiversity Festival was a 3-day virtual event celebrating the weird and the wonderful, the challenges life faces and some good news conservation stories. We will be sharing highlights from the festival with our community members.
