Acrobatic Jungle Monkeys


As the expedition starts to wind down, the team continues to observe the monkey group at their feeding zone. Julie enlists the help of the climbing team to rig ropes for her to climb into the upper branches of a tree almost as tall as a 20-story building, where she can study each distinct call and whoop of the mangabeys. After living in a tree house, interacting with monkeys and getting acquainted with the locals, the team has gained incredible insight into the day-to-day life of this threatened species.

Life in the Canopy: Preserving Eden airs on Nat Geo Wild Tuesday July 20 at 10P et/pt.

Video Preview: These monkeys might be more at home in the circus than in the jungle! Mangabeys are able to take giant leaps from tree to tree.
