These wonderful animals have very soft coats like golden in color.
There are so many species in the world of animals that are under threat of disappearance. We, people, should be more interested in these creatures and help them survive.
One of these endangered species is the golden lion tamarin. These wonderful animals have a soft coats, similar to a golden color.
Unfortunately, only 2% are found in the natural places of their habitat – the Atlantic coasts of Brazil.
To help them breed, some golden lion tamarins with gold lions are grown in zoos. Of course, keeping them in enclosures is not the best solution, but at least so far it is important for their population.
Recently, the Atlanta Zoo announced the birth of two twins of the golden lion tamarin. It was a big holiday for wildlife defenders.
The names of the siblings Blixx and Tiete. They feel great and spread healthy babies.
It was in 1970 when these species were almost on the verge of extinction. Fortunately, in the 1990s and 2000s, thanks to the breeding program, they began to be diluted in zoos.
The number of golden lion tamarins reached 3,000 individuals. Unfortunately, now they are again in threat of extinction, but experts are doing everything possible to keep their population stable.
That is why the Atlanta Zoo is so glad to replenish!
