One boat. One unexplored jungle. One missing monkey.
A group of talented scientists, conservationists, and photographers.
Real Science! Real Adventure! Keep Following Us!
We have been undertaking 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!
Follow us on a journey into an uncharted corner of the Amazon where forests flood and a world of unknown animals will be discovered!
Join Dr. Laura K. Marsh, the scientist who discovered that the monkey had not been seen alive where it was originally collected in the 1930s, and her team of international researchers, local guides, conservationists and photographers, on a 4-month journey into the unexplored Amazonian Rainforest.
The quest for finding living Pithecia vanzolinii where they were originally collected in the 1930s is a success! We have been looking the length of the Rio Eiru and can report they are on both sides of the river. The Rio Eiru region is severely hunted, farmed, and logged, so in some areas, the sakis are the largest primate left in the area.
We now are studying the monkey, conducting a full mammal survey and working with local communities to understand forest and river use.
We found them throughout their Amazonian range! Keep following us to read all of the great science coming from this amazing project!
