Adopt a Golden Lion Tamarin

golden lion tamarin

Thirty years ago, fewer than 200 golden lion tamarins could be found in their native habitat in Brazil. As a result of breeding and reintroduction programs, the wild golden lion tamarin population has grown to more than 1,500 individuals. Adopt a golden lion tamarin and help the Smithsonian's National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute save species and support Friends of the National Zoo.
