A photo of Callimico Goeldi
In July of this year, we were at Chandless State Park. It was an inspection activity and also to deliver baskets of food and cleaning and hygiene material to the residents of the Conservation Unit.
One afternoon, my friend Ricardo Plácido, a birdwatcher, went out for an evening stroll. Even at the beginning of the trail, near the park’s headquarters, I heard Leontocebus weddelli (Weddell’s Saddle-back Tamarin) vocalizing, as he has already trained, so I was attentive. A few moments ago I heard the different vocalizations, and looking even faster, I noticed the movement pattern characteristic of the Goeldi’s Monkey.
I told Ricardo, look that.
It was a group of five individuals, quickly Ricardo and I started the epic to make a photo of the species in the wild. It was difficult because the environment was tangled with vines and bamboo, and any sudden movement drove the specimens away. With great patience, caution, and time I got this beautiful record.
The Chandless State Park is a state conservation unit, located in the center east of the state of Acre, Brazil, with approximately 690 thousand hectares of preserved forest, with a high wealth of mammals.
