CI President and renowned primatologist Russ Mittermeier encounters wild golden lion tamarins (Leontopithecus rosalia) in Brazil's Poço das Antas Biological Reserve. Through conservation efforts, the species — listed as Endangered by the IUCN Red List — has been expanded from about 200 wild individuals in the 1970s to nearly 1,600 today. The monkey is featured on Brazil's 20 real note, which Russ holds next to a tamarin in this video.
