SEPRONA has recovered a monkey of the species Tamarino Labiado, which was wandering, on April 7, along a street in the Maryvilla urbanization, in the town of Calp, and was found by a neighbor in the area.
Apparently, the animal had been abandoned in recent days, possibly for fear of its owner to some kind of contagion or transmission of disease.

It should be noted that this species is protected by the Cites Convention, in its Annex 1, so its possession by individuals is prohibited.

The animal, which is in perfect health, as it does not have a chip or any other form of identification, has been deposited at the Primadomus primate recovery center in Villena, at the disposal of the Customs Agency and the Official Inspection Service , Surveillance and Regulation of Exports (SOIVRE), both from the province of Alicante.
