    By: Sandra Markle
    Series: Animal Prey
    Prairie dogs find safety in numbers. Hundreds of them live together in underground tunnels. When the small animals come to the surface to nibble prairie grasses, they keep a close watch for enemies, such as eagles, coyotes, or black-footed ferrets.

For prairie dogs, large colonies keep them safe.

    The Great Monkey Rescue
    Saving the Golden Lion Tamarins
    By: Sandra Markle
    Golden lion tamarins are found only in Brazilian forests. These small, remarkable monkeys once had plenty of space to roam and claim family territories. But years of deforestation caused their numbers to shrink. They were in serious danger of becoming extinct.

    To help, scientists studied the animals in zoo settings. But they faced several mysteries. Why weren't golden lion tamarins reproducing in zoos? If scientists reintroduced zoo-raised tamarins to the wild, would those monkeys survive? And how could scientists give tamarins enough forest area for the population to grow? Find out how scientists and concerned citizens worked together to give golden lion tamarins a hopeful future.
