There are 8 comments on Helping Hands: Matching Capuchins With Those in Need

  1. Robin – GREAT video!!! What fun that must have been to make! It’s really cool to see what innovations BU is involved in and one that just creates that “feel good” feeling!

  2. Although helping disabled people is an admirable goal I can’t help but feel depressed while watching this. Capuchin monkeys are just as intelligent and interesting as shown in this video. They are also wild animals who are too often taken from their homes to be molded to the uses of human beings. Whether it be performing in a circus, serving as a pet, or this, it would be nice if they were left to live their lives… the same thing that people at the Monkey College go through such pains to help their paraplegic patients do.
