The Golden Lion Tamarin Conservation Program is one of ten success stories from around the world featured in the Conservation Breeding Specialist Group’s (CBSG) new book Second Nature available for free download or viewing in book form online at www.cbsg.org/latest-news/second-nature.
Each story describes what's possible when dedicated people who have a common purpose collaborate to save threatened species. Behind all these stories is CBSG, a small but effective catalyst for changing the futures of endangered species. Thank you, CBSG, for more than 35 years and counting of partnership in conservation planning with all of us working to assure a future for Golden Lion Tamarins in their native Atlantic Forest in Rio de Janeiro.
