Eco Park Lodge Monkey Forest
The center for rehabilitation and re-introduction of wild animals (known as the Monkey forest),was created in 1991 with the intention of receiving animals which have been confiscated from illegal commerce. This is a joint project with the Municipal Secretary of Environment and Sustainability.
In this center,the animals are initially put into quarentine to be evaluated and taken care of by a team of vetenarians and biologists. With a high success rate since the start,the animals manage to reproduce naturally,creating new families and ensuring survival of the spieces.
In partnership with the FFV (Live Forest Foundation),a non profit institution overseen by Amazon Ecopark Lodge,a unique feeding system has been developed.
Twice a day,(10:30 & 15:30),the animals receive supplements of their natural diet,ensuring that they are being fed the necessary nutrients.
The Monkey Forest is open to guests at feeding times,always accompanied by a credentialed professional,permiting guests to film and photograph these animals in a natural and safe environment.
