Fundación Ecologica Santa Fe, a non-profit, private institution, runs a program to return back to their natural habitat Colombian monkeys that had been confiscated by people involved in illegal wildlife trafficking. To raise funds for their efforts and to give people much needed employment, Fundación Ecologica Santa Fe produces these plush monkey toys.

Colombia is home to 10% of the planet's biodiversity, but habitat destruction from agricultural expansion and the cultivation of coca plants threatens the survival of many species. This project helps rehabilitate monkeys and preserve the land, it gives viable economic alternatives to illegal wildlife trade and coca production.

Previously, One World Projects would not import plush toys because of the lack of renewable materials used, and often the workers are not properly paid. But cute stuffed monkeys support both environmental and social causes!

In the Colombian countryside, poverty and the displacement of peasants due to civil war has increased illegal wildlife poaching activities.

Economic alternatives based on the sustainable use of natural resources, accompanied with environmental education programs, are required to make Fundación Ecologica Santa Fe's conservation programs successful.

One World Projects works with Fundación Ecologica Santa Fe in the 10,000-person community of Pintada, to produce plush toys representing the monkey species that the organization hopes to reintroduce to the wild.

Located near the Pan American Highway, Pintada has become a rest stop for truck drivers, who have left behind a disproportionate number of children without fathers. Crafting these items gives single moms a much needed source of income, and gives their children hope for a better future.
