There are quite a few organizations in the #manuelantonio   area that constantly work to keep both the animals and forest safe. We collaborate with them every time we get a chance. Kids Saving the Rainforest is one of them. Check out these: TOP 5 REASONS YOU SHOULD NOT FEED THE MONKEYS

1. Monkeys are highly susceptible to diseases from human hands. They can die from bacteria transferred from your hands to the monkeys, bacteria that have no ill effect on you.

2. Migration to human-populated areas where they are fed increases their risk of dog attacks and road accidents.

3. Irregular feeding leads to an aggressive behavior towards humans and other species.

4. Contrary to popular belief, bananas are not the "preferred" food of monkeys in the wild. Bananas, especially those containing pesticides, can be upsetting to the monkeys’ delicate digestive system and cause serious dental problems that can lead to eventual death.

5. Humans feeding monkeys in the wild creates a dangerous dependency which diminishes the monkeys’ survival abilities.
