Hear the story of Costa Rica’s endangered spider monkeys and build model wildlife bridges to keep them safe from predators and human settlements. Together storyteller Helen Tozer and rainforest ecologist Jenna Lawson will discuss the threats posed by deforestation, and our role in combating it, as well as how wildlife corridors can help spider monkeys survive in a precious but endangered ecosystem they contribute so much to.
Please send us your questions! We’d love to talk about them during the workshop. You can submit these questions on Eventbrite when you register for this event or add them to the live chat on the day.
You will need:
