About

Volunteer at the Argentina Howler Monkey Project and help rehabilitate howler monkeys that have been taken from their natural habitats and sold as pets or as exhibits in zoos. This unique project has been helping preserve Argentina's howler monkey population for more than 20 years but despite being a protected species they are sadly still listed as officially vulnerable.

The project is in an area which sees very little in the way of tourism and provides a safe area away from civilisation to allow the undisturbed rehabilitation of the howler monkeys. At the project there are more than 100 monkeys that live freely in areas within the sanctuary. These animals have been rescued from around the country through seizures by the government, zoo closures, voluntary hand ins etc, and now, thanks to the tireless work of the sanctuary they are able to live a happier life, just as nature intended.


Volunteers work with the local project staff preparing food for the monkeys, feeding and caring for them and maintaining the sanctuary.
