You can find our family of Goeldi’s monkeys in their exhibit in Monkey Heights, which they share with our pygmy marmosets and three-banded armadillo!
The preferred habitat of this monkey are forests that have a shrubby, dense undergrowth. They are found in the upper Amazon basin of Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Peru and Ecuador.
Depending on the season, their diet consists of fruit, nectar, insects, flowers and small lizards.
The number of Goeldi’s monkeys in the wild is thought to be decreasing as a result of habitat loss.
Our Goeldi’s monkeys are part of the EAZA ex-situ breeding programme (EEP) for the species, which is managed by Dublin Zoo.
