COSTA RICA PLEASE END WILDLIFE ELECTROCUTIONS NOW: 80% loss of monkey populations due to electrocutions, in just the last 10 years, based on scientific studies by Tico biologists.
That doesn't even account for other arboreal animal mortalities.
Many of these electrocutions happen within national park boundaries.

ANYBODY OUT THERE WANT TO HELP ?
Please message me through Facebook if you can help collect signatures for this campaign. Mary Perry - https://www.facebook.com/mary.perry.7...

The Costa Rican government does not think wildlife electrocutions are of much concern, and therefore, they do not insulate electrical wires or engage in the building of monkey bridges across these dangerous lines.
* When monkeys try crossing from canopy to canopy they use these uninsulated electrical lines and wind up being electrocuted and fried.
Sometimes, a baby monkey is found, still clinging onto its dead mother's tummy, abandoned by the survivors , & unable to survive on its own.

PLEASE join this group to support the prevention of wildlife electrocutions in Costa Rica. This petition-like group will be a way for all of us to share information, pictures, and videos of any electrocuted animals found or known about, or if you want to support this campaign to have the electrical grid made safe for all wildlife.
We need to document the incidents, locations, witnesses, ICE post #'s, and any other available data, and POST it to this group.

On Jan. 23, I, Mary Lynn Perry, President of Rainsong Wildlife Sanctuary, was in Manzanillo, at Las Palmeras - Rainsong's sea turtle patrol headquarters - when a troop of about 15 congos came to the roadside up in the canopy to try to cross over to eat the beach almond leaves and cenizaro leaves on the beachside of the road. IT RAINED ELECTROCUTED CONGOS. 4 females, one with a tiny baby, and then the alpha male threw himself down to rescue the fallen females. I held one by the tail that fell in the road [her tail was so hot from the electrocution that it hurt to hold her tail ], to give her first aid and I threw myself over another that was being torn up by dogs upon falling from the live wire.The alpha male landed on a huge plank and was seriously hurt from the hard landing. It was really a crazy sad horrible tragedy. I believe that maybe one or 2 females might have survived the incident. The rest, I doubt that they survived. It can take up to 10 days for an electrocuted animal to die, even without external burns, their organs are cooked, and it's an agonizing extremely painful and slow death.
