Um barco. Uma floresta inexplorada. Um macaco desaparecido.

Um grupo de talentosos cientistas, conservacionistas e fotógrafos.

E a aventura de uma vida.

We are going on a scientific expedition into an unexplored Amazonian watershed, the Alto Rio Jurua, in Brazil to conduct a full survey of all the mammals that live there and look for missing saki monkeys that have not been seen alive there for over 80 years!

Siga-nos nessa jornada para uma região inexplorado da Amazônia, onde florestas alagam e um mundo de animais desconhecidos será descoberto!

Junte-se a Dra. Laura K. Marsh, a cientista que descobriu que o macaco estava sumido, e ao seu time de pesquisadores internacionais, guias locais, conservacionistas e fotógrafos, numa viagem de 4 meses em uma região inexplorada da Amazônia.

Nós estamos quase prontos para partir!

Agora, nós precisamos de sua ajuda! Contribua com a nossa campanha de financiamento coletivo!  Please donate Now!

This is our Houseboat!! The expedition leaders, Dr. Laura K. Marsh and Dr. Felipe Ennes Sliva (abd), were super happy to meet Capitão Elival when they went to Brazil in May, 2016 to prepare for this expedition.

We will use boats like these to conduct the daily surveys (the careful scientific search). Boats will be piloted by local guides and and carry one additional researcher.

At night, we'll be sleeping here. During the day, this area will transform into our floating research station.

The target monkey's scientific name is Pithecia (pie-THEE-cee-a) vanzolinii (van-zo-LEE-nee-i).  It was named in 1987 for Paolo Vanzolini, a Brazilian scientist and composer.
