The grey-crowned subspecies of squirrel monkey is found exclusively in the Manuel Antonio area of Costa Rica, and unfortunately this endangered species is injured regularly by un-insulated electrical wires. Our mission is to help save these monkeys as well as other species that are at risk of electrocution or injury when crossing the road. The solution we've come up with has turned into The Monkey Bridge Program.
We work with the local hydroelectric company (ICE) to put rope bridges up across roads as needed, as well as to maintain the bridges that we've put up in the past. With your help, we can continue to build and maintain these monkey bridges for the wildlife of Manuel Antonio!
