They teach you how to ride your first bike, sneak you the last cookie when no one’s looking, and they make sure there are no monsters under your bed. What can we say? Dads make the world go round.

Saving the  #LittleLionMan

Thought to be extinct and rediscovered in the 1960s, today, Black Lion Tamarins face a battle for survival, and numbers in the wild are declining.  +Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust have put this species back in the wild before. So we can do the same again, right?

Well, it's not as simple as that. Their home, the Atlantic Rainforest in Brazil, is disappearing around them. Just 14% of their rainforest habitat remains, in 11 forest patches, of which just 1 is viable in the long term. A key determiner of saving this species is therefore to foster a viable captive population.

Durrell Wildlife Park in Jersey is now the focal point of a last ditch effort to save the captive population of this species. 8 of the remaining 15 captive black lion tamarins are now housed in our Park - so this really is a last chance to save them. We hope to see the likes of the little fellow in this photo again soon!

We thought we'd lost them once, and we're doing everything we can to ensure we won't in future.

Please help spread the word and show your support for the #LittleLionMan . +1/Share this post, and add us to your circles to keep 'in the know'. Thank you!
