The Natural World: Uakari, Secrets of the English Monkey

This evening, 26th March 2009.
BBC2 at 8PM

In the flooded forests of the Peruvian Amazon lives one of the world's rarest and most mysterious primates, the Red-Faced Uakari Monkey. Local people call them English Monkeys, because of their resemblance to sunburnt visitors. Now there's a new Englishman on the scene, Mark Bowler, a young biologist who battles through the forest in his quest to understand their secret lives. The film shows the first footage of these extraordinary monkeys in the wild and reveals why ice cream could be the greatest threat to their survival.
