Happy 20th Anniversary to AMLD in Brazil!
November 9, 1992, saw the establishment of the Associação Mico Leão Dourado (AMLD), the Brazilian NGO working to conserve golden lion tamarins (GLTs) and their habitat in the Atlantic Forest. Since the inception of AMLD, the number of GLTs living in the wild has gone from just several hundred to 1,700! We continue to partner with the AMLD as we work toward our goal of having 2,000 GLTs in 25,000 hectares of protected and connected habitat.
