Here are some ways you could help:

  • Make a monthly recurring donation via Just Give (see link).

  • Help us identify corporate donors to help us reach our US$8 million target for the Devra Kleiman Fund to Save Golden Lion Tamarins in perpetuity.

Your contribution, large or small, is important to saving GLTs from extinction.  

  • $8,000 would purchase one vehicle to carry AMLD field teams to their work sites (local farms, schools, forests)
  • $5,000 will "Adopt a Group", supporting the actions needed to monitor a GLT family and care for their habitat for a year.  We will send you photos and updates on a tamarin family's activities, such as new births.   If you have an opportunity to go to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, you can visit your adopted group up to twice a year!
  • $2,000 would restore two hectares (about five acres) of native forest corridor - enough to "soak up" 6-19 tons of carbon per year for 30 years, effectively neutralizing the carbon footprint of an average North American citizen, thus helping to save our Planet. 
  • $1,000 would restore one hectare (about 1.5 acres)  of native forest corridor.  We will name part of the corridor after you.
  • $1,500 would support one week-long workshop to train local teachers to develop community environmental projects as part of their school curriculum.
  • $500 will let you name a wild infant  Golden Lion Tamarin (for $1,000 you can name a set of twins) and support all our conservation program.  We will enter the name you choose in the official GLT population records.
  • $250 will purchase a radio transmitter collar to help us monitor a tamarin group in the forest.
  • $50 will allow you to symbolically Adopt Devra, a GLT, supporting all GLT conservation efforts.
  • $25 will help us continue monitoring the wild tamarin population with critical supplies such as flashlights and boots for our field team.
  • A gift in any amount to the Devra Kleiman Fund to Save the Golden Lion Tamarin will live on, providing annual support the AMLD to save golden lion tamarins in perpetuity.  Help us reach our US$8million target.
