Capuchin monkeys, like all non-human primates, are highly intelligent, agile, gregarious and curious. They are one of the New World species of primates who are indigenous to Mexico and South and Central America.
Small and lean, capuchin monkeys can cover 27 feet in a single jump.
The intelligence of capuchin monkeys is shown in their use of tools. They will use boulders, some of them weighing as much as themselves, to crack open fruit to get to the nut inside.
Wildlife Rescue’s Vision is that humans come to see that we are members of a vast life community, that we experience the proper gratitude and respect for this community, and that we live in a more appropriate and compassionate manner in relation to the whole.
WRR was founded in 1977 in San Antonio, Texas. Since 2001 its primary base of operations has been located on 212 acres near Kendalia, Texas, a property which was purchased through the generosity of three of our supporters.
