Weekly Photo Challenge (Wildlife)

For this week’s “Wildlife” theme (and in honor of Mother’s Day) i’ve decided to post a photo of a Java Macaque Monkey with baby. I do quite a bit of volunteer work with an organization called “Hands on Miami” and one of my favorite projects is helping out the DuMond Center at the Monkey Jungle. Monkey jungle is a family owned and operated bio-park that started in 1933 and is home to over 400 primates. Conservationists study, train and conduct projects, as well as participate in the International Collaborative Breeding Program, which reintroduces captive born animals into protected habitats in the wild.

  1. Sweet. Thanks for the work you do. My daughter is a vet tech and has done lots of volunteer work with animals in addition to her work at an animal hospital. I admire all of you who take such a keen interest in maintaining and preserving our wildlife. Again, thank you.
