The Monkey Bridge Project

Connecting Primates & Places

For our JAS September program, Rachel Allai will take us to Costa Rica to learn about a very practical conservation solution. The meeting will be held Sept. 26, 7:30 pm. at the Trinity Lutheran Fellowship Hall, 1245 New Hampshire.

The Monkey Bridge Project began in 2006 for two simple reasons: to keep monkeys and other arboreal animals safely in the trees and off roads; and to connect fragmented forest patches. She will explore the past, present and future of the project, connecting us to a population of monkeys thousands of miles away.
