White Faced Monkeys (Capuchin)

In the wild white faced moneys monkeys live 15-25 years but in captivity can live up to 45 – such a conflicting idea. I know at this clinic these animals get treated very well, but they are still in some way in a prison; would you prefer to live a longer life knowing you’ll be well fed and taken care of but in a cage for the rest of your life or would you be okay with a shorter life and having to fend for yourself as long as you have freedom?

As hard as it is to think this way the workers and volunteers at this clinic know that if they’re let out in the wild after being forcefully removed and with their lack of instinct they would not survive more than a few days if even that.

They sometimes picked up rocks thinking they were food
