More than two weeks after Hurricane Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico, scientists are still scrambling to save the more than 1,000 rhesus monkeys living of the island's southeast coast. Since tge 1930s, Cayo Santiago, known as “Monkey Island,” has been a crucial resource for researchers studying primates. Miraculously, the monkeys largely survived the initial impact of Hurricane Maria. But the storm devastated the small island, destroying its lush vegetation and wrecking the infrastructure that provided its inhabitants with fresh water. Researchers are now transporting shipments of food and water to the island and distributing supplies in the local community in nearby Punta Santiago.
