Vish was taken to Neotropical Primate Conservation (NPC), a non-profit rescue and conservation organization based in Peru. Noga Shanee, a primate conservationist and one of the founders of NPC, told OneGreenPlanet that when Vish first arrived, she was worried he wouldn't recover.
"There was a frightening period when Vish just seemed to give up," she said, "He stopped eating and we thought he wasn't going to make it. But we persevered and Vish was determined. After this small pause in his rehabilitation, he recovered his appetite and then there was no stopping him!"
