Monkeys On Hold

Yes, the monkeys are stull eking out an existence along this short river distance. They’re still waiting for LRFF to increase their habitat and chances for survival by restoring native forest on these two separate farms of Elias and Irene Cruz Quintanilla.

We can’t express the appreciation we all feel (monkeys included) for all the generous donations this project has already received. Thank you so much!

We are featuring this project and three others in our end-of-year fundraising campaign because it’s a priority project for the monkey’s sake. Imagine what a great gift we can give to these three different species of monkeys all living together in the narrow corridor left behind after deforestation.

All we want for Christmas is the opportunity to plant 6000+ native trees of more that 110 species….. For the monkeys.

Happy holidays from all of us at LRFF, let’s double down next year!
