A 15-day-old night monkey is feed by a veterinarian at a temporary shelter west of Bogota, Colombia, on Monday.
Sponsored by Bogota's Ministry of Environment, the shelter receives between 3,000 and 3,500 wild animals a year; some seized from poachers and others found hurt. An estimated $560,000 are spent in the recovery and care of these animals. Seventy percent of rescued animals are reintroduced to their habitat and the remaining 30 percent are sent to zoos around the country.
