"White Faced Monkey" by Ethan, 19 | Costa Rica
We saw all five species of monkeys in Costa Rica, and were awoken every morning by the dinosaur roars of howler monkeys. These white face monkeys, however, seemed to be the most friendly and curious.
About Ethan: "My name is Ethan. I am originally from Neillsville, WI. In my life, I have had rough patches. I did alright through middle school and elementary school but toward high school and graduation time, I struggled with depression and drug and alcohol abuse. Passage was a great program that helped me see what was important and helped me turn my life around. Corcovado National Park was just stunning. We’d wake up and go out hiking and everything was new and amazing. There was always something new and exciting around every corner. It’s opportunities like this that make me even more grateful for everything that everyone has done for me."
