Howler monkey rescued by dugout canoe, in Bocas del Toro, Panama

This juvenile howler monkey was drowning on his attempt to swim across the bay. He was rescued by a guy paddling a dugout canoe.

We fed him some Papaya, and later let set him free on my farm. More info on my Website about my project in Bocas del Toro, Panama.
