Hard to believe, but marmoset monkeys, a species decreasing in the wild, are being sold on-line and shipped around the United States. These extremely tiny monkeys are very social and depend on larger groups in the wild. Pairs often mate for life, and all monkeys need their social groups to feel secure. Their diet is very specific and impossible to replicate in captivity. Imagine being shipped all alone across the country, never to see one of your kind again, and kept in conditions where your diet is inadequate and you are in constant danger -- all because you are part of a fad.

Stop the so-called "Monkey Whisperer" from making a living selling these unique sentient beings, and send a message to the Governor and Senator of Florida demanding that the sale of such exotic animals be banned.
