These small primates are highly social and intelligent monkeys commonly found in many national parks and forested areas of Costa Rica. Their feeding activities are very important to the rainforest ecology through dispersion of seeds and pollination. As a Costa Rican born artist, I often found inspiration in the magnificent Tortuguero National Park. It is the home to this specific group of white face capuchin monkeys. Tortuguero is located on Costa Rica’s beautiful Caribbean Coast in the northeastern region of the country and much of the region consists of protected wilderness area. Tortuguero National Park is a sanctuary to around 60 species of mammals, 170 species of reptiles and 300 different species of birds, not to mention the numerous species of insects and plants. It truly is a wonderful and important place for conservation practices to be supported, both now and into the future.
