On day 1 of volunteering at Paseo Los Monos Monkey Rescue Center in Puyo, Ecuador my camera was confiscated by Sambo, the alpha woolly monkey.

He told me I could have it back at the end of the week, but not before he put together this short video explaining his life at “the Monkey Ranch”.

If you notice any shaky footage you need to understand that monkeys don’t use tripods.

Read all about my experience at Paseo Los Monos Monkey Rescue Center.

Special thanks to all animals and volunteers who made this week one of the most amazing experiences of my life.

Also, thanks to Nick Greco for translating Sambo’s dialog.
