Adopt A Monkey – Mango

Mango was rescued close to the Puente de La Amistad Costa Rica-Taiwan Bridge (Taiwan Friendship Bridge), on the highway coming from Limonal toward Nicoya. He fell onto the street and hit his head pretty hard when the branch that he was holding
onto broke. The fall caused damage to his optic nerve causing temporary blindness.

At first, Mango couldn’t move or see very well, but his eye sight
slowly came back and he started climbing again! He still has a lazy left eye, but that hasn’t stopped him from becoming the alpha male of the babies in the older nursery! The moment he was moved from the small baby nursery into the larger baby nursery, he showed his dominance. He’s a strong baby and has no problem showing everyone who’s boss. Mango is a true fighter and hasn’t let his disability stop him from being the leader of the group. He’s even started to howl!

Help us by adopting Mango!

It costs approximately $60 a week to provide care for one of our orphaned monkeys. Most infants will live at Refuge for Wildlife for 18-24 months before they are old enough to start a release program.

Each orphaned monkey is provided with:
