Common Marmoset

Common Marmoset

Brazil's Forests used to be rich in marmosets, but the forests are in great need of repair due to thoughtless development. This particular breed of marmoset has become a invasive species in many parts of Brazil. People either intentionally or unintentionally let their pet marmosets loose and they reproduced. It was endemic to the North East coast of Brazil. Again, as a tourist, I thought these were the greatest little animals, but most people around me expressed grief that they were edging out the endemic breeds. REGUA is trying to build connector to the bits and pieces left of the Atlantic Rainforest so that wildlife will have corridors to move about it.
