It takes a team of people to rehab and then finally release a monkey back with her troop. Our KSTR crew were on call for a few days waiting for the phone call from either Tulemar or Los Altos in Costa Rica saying,”The monkeys are here!”
Did we always get there in time? Of course not, that would be to easy! They went to plan B of course. We knew the time the monkeys passed through everyday and we knew approximately where they would be, so they waited and waited….did you hear that? Monkeys are coming!!! Our Vet Tech Sam Trull holds up the carrier and tells the monkeys, ” I have your monkey!!!!!”
I think if they could talk I’m pretty sure they would’ve said thanks for taking care of our friend and bringing her back to our troop.
