As we near the end of the year, we can reflect on many of the successes that we've celebrated this year for GLTs and the Atlantic Coastal Forest. However, GLTs still need our help to protect and connect their forest habitat. Consider giving the gift of tamarins to a loved one this holiday season, or support SGLT and AMLD as part of a year-end US tax deduction. Take a closer look at some of our donation options for 2014.
For $50, Sponsor GLT Devra!
Make a donation to Save the Golden Lion Tamarin in support of conservation efforts to save golden lion tamarins (GLTs) in perpetuity and choose a thank you gift for yourself or others. For more information on our 2014 gift, Sponsor GLT Devra, click here.
Make a donation of any amount to SGLT!
You can directly support golden lion tamarin conservation in Brazil. Help us reach our goal of 2000 GLTs living in 25,000 ha (about 62,000 acres) of connected and protected forest by 2025. Make your tax deductible (in the U.S.) contribution to Save the Golden Lion Tamarin today! Click here for all of our donation options.
For $500, Name a GLT!
For a donation of $500, we are offering the opportunity to choose a name for one of these newly born infants or for a newly found adult GLT. Past donors have given names such as Devra, Darci, Eduardo, and Jeremy, and until all of the new GLTs have been named, this is your chance to choose one for yourself or as a gift to someone special.

Buy Thirteen Gold Monkeys!
Thirteen Gold Monkeys, by Benjamin Beck, scientist emeritus in the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute and SGLT board member, is a novel based on the first years of the reintroduction of zoo-born golden lion tamarins to Brazil. It’s a story of hope, love, and unspeakable death in a disappearing Brazilian rainforest. A team of dogged conservationists tries to save this beautiful monkey species from certain extinction by reinforcing their numbers with tamarins born in zoos.
