Chavo and Holly

CHAVO AND HOLLY: "Chavo," an adult uakari monkey, was brought to the orphanage several years ago. He had a bullet wound in the chest and a broken ankle. At Pilpintuwasi, he is very protective of the other monkeys. Chavo has a particularly strong attachment to OFS marine biologist Holly Lohuis. © Richard Murphy, Ocean Futures Society
