Maikuchiga means “the monkeys’ story” in Tikuna, an indigenous language of the Colombian Amazon. Fundación Maikuchiga, a Colombian community-based nonprofit organization, has been a regional leader since 2006 in:
- community-based conservation, both biological and cultural
- participative investigation and biodiversity monitoring
- the rehabilitation of primates confiscated from the illegal trade in wildlife
- environmental education.
Maikuchiga Global Solidarity is a US nonprofit organization (501[c]) created in 2016 to provide an international mechanism for supporting the goals, objectives, and programs of Fundación Maikuchiga.
Amacayacu National Park and the Colombian National Park Service have been strategic allies of Fundación Maikuchiga since its inception and continue to provide logistic and professional support for our joint programs.
