We continue our fight in Preservation of Wildlife!

On the 29th of April, with the help of PROFEPA, a baby howler monkey named MUUK arrived at Akumal Monkey Sanctuary & Rescued Animals.

She was found at the biosphere of Calakmul, lying on the floor next to its dead mother. She was in very bad conditions with a broken arm and exposed bones.

We do not know the cause of dead of the mother but we strongly believe she died because she was hunted for her baby. Yearly many mother monkeys die as hunters shoot them when they carry their babies on the top of the trees.

The baby monkeys often have several internal injuries due their falls and are later trafficked to sell them for high quantities on black markets.
