One of the most threatened primates in the world, the Pied Tamarin has been classified by the IUCN as “Critically Endangered” (next level would be “Extinct in the Wild”). Found only in and near the burgeoning Amazonian city of Manaus, this New World monkey faces dramatic habitat loss, human-induced mortality, and competition from a different tamarin species. I have led ecotours in this region, and it is shocking to see how much deforestation is happening, particularly under the current Brazilian president’s land use policies. I strongly believe that both art and ecotourism can help build awareness of and protection for rare wildlife and ecosystems. Time is of the essence.
