Duration: 1 to 3 hours (depending on health conditions of participants).

MONKEY FOREST

The facilities for rehabilitation and re-introduction of wild animals in their habitat (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 quarantine to be evaluated and taken care of by a team of veterinaries and biologists.

In partnership with the FFV (Live Forest Foundation), a nonprofit 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. It is also possible to “adopt” one of these animals and follow its development. Find out more as: http://www.ffv.org.br

Duration: 40 minutes to 1 hour.

The alligator will then be safely released back to the river. (No harm is done to any of the animals)
