About the Project
National Geographic Waitt grantee Jean Boubli travels to Brazil's Amazon rain forest to search for a wedge-capped capuchin, a primate that historically is not known to inhabit the region. The primatologist hopes to document the monkey on film for the first time ever and collect genetic samples to help determine if this is a new species. The results could lead to these animals and their habitat being better protected.
Scientists estimate only about 3,000 wild tigers are left in the entire world. Meet the subspecies and see what threats each is facing.
