Cristian Cervantes was born in San Juan Nepomuceno and enjoyed spending time at his grandfather’s farm when he was a child. In fact, the farm is where is saw his very first cotton-top tamarin in the nearby forest.
The community of Los Límites, home to our first celebration has hosted their event to include many fun activities with kids displaying their creativity in ways to show their dedication to cotton-top tamarin conservation.
In 2017, Proyecto Tití decided to protect forested areas near Los Colorados National Park (2,500 acres), one of the largest forests for cotton-top tamarins in northern Colombia
As Proyecto Tití works with communities to build sustainable income generating programs, we also are committed to ensuring that people feel a sense of pride and accomplishment in understanding how their efforts are helping to protect cotton-top tamarins.
