This little spider monkey's name is Rikky!
from our partner in Belize! @wildtracksbelize
Before confiscation by the Belize Forest Department, Rikky was kept illegally as a pet, chained up for almost 20 years, bringing her into contact with humans, dogs, and resulting in a myriad of parasites. Because of situations like this, the first step for all monkeys entering the Primate Rehabilitation Programme is to go through a mandatory 30 day quarantine period with a dedicated quarantine carer. During the quarantine period, monkeys are treated for both physical and mental health issues, through necessary medications, healthy fruit and foliage filled diets, and socialization from their carer. After they are declared healthy, integration with their new troop begins! 💚
