MOUNTAIN MARMOSETS CONSERVATION PROGRAM
The Mountain Marmoset Conservation Program/Programa de Conservação dos Saguis-da-serra is part of PREA NGO and works with specific focus on species conservation.
The Program is focused on the conservation of two endangered marmosets found in the mountainous areas of South-eastern Atlantic Rainforest, Brazil; the Buffy headed marmoset (Callithrix flaviceps) and the Buffy tufted-ear marmoset (Callithrix aurita) and adopts its own Brazilian and International logo and maintains a program specific website to assist with public and stakeholder recognition and engagement with the mission to conserve two very special and endangered marmoset species.
In the wild, both species face similar threats and although there were concerns highlighted about the species conservation status's more than 30 years ago, it was only more recently that these two species have become a conservation priority.
