Lori and Amari, two macaques brought to Phnom Tamao in Septemeber 2018, are both doing well. The mother, Amari, has very limited vision but is otherwise happy and healthy. Her daughter, Lori, continues to grow and gain strength every day and does not let her injuries from infancy slow her down.
Since September, many macaques have been injured or removed from their wild troops from people trying to make money off of exploiting the monkeys on YouTube. This has become a major issue and while we recognize that many people across the world have grown to care deeply about these animals, the mistreatment of these monkeys will continue until people stop watching the videos.
At Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center (PTWRC), Wildlife Alliance cares for and rehabilitates animals rescued from the illegal wildlife trade.
