I spent six weeks this summer (2014) at the La Suerte Biological Field Station in Costa Rica. The photos were of primates I was observing in the field. I will be presenting some of the work at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (Fall 2014) on a social group of white-faced capuchins (Cebus capucinus) at the field site. The field school was taught by Dr. Katherine MacKinnon from St. Louis University and hosted by the Maderas Rainforest Conservancy. It was home to three different species of primates; white-faced capuchins, mantled howler monkeys (Alouatta palliata) and black-handed spider monkeys (Ateles geoffroyi). Dr. Peters wrote a letter of recommendation for the field school and data were collected for a formulated individual research project on my selected study species. All photographs, save for the one picturing me, were taken by yours truly. Permission by the photographer was granted for the photo of me. The website of the conservancy is:

(note: just for fun there is a video/sound of another howler; they never sound like what you expect a primate to sound like - check it out :
