Don’t miss the chance to see The Green Planet’s latest arrivals: newborn cotton-top tamarin twins. Weighing less than 0.5kg, cotton-top tamarins are small monkeys that are usually found in the northwest corner of Colombia, but as a critically endangered species, it is estimated that only five percent of their natural habitat remains due to deforestation. With this in mind, The Green Planet has entered into a conservation breeding program to help support the rebuilding of a healthy population of the species, making the arrival of the new babies a step in the right direction. Successfully settling in well into their new home, you can visit the beyond-adorable twins from today at The Green Planet.
