They are seniors at Miami Palmetto Senior High in Pinecrest, Florida, in the U.S.
The girls are all Girl Scout Gold Award recipients and the boys are Eagle Scouts. The triplets, Melissa, Kevin and Christine are weekly volunteers at the DuMond Conservancy in the Monkey Jungle in Miami. They work primarily with owl monkeys. Two of the triplets wrote a book called “Two Monkey Tales.” One of the stories in the book, “Let’s Save the Rainforest,” is written and illustrated by Melissa. The other, “Nina, A Monkey’s Story” is written and illustrated by Christine.
The camp will be held from 9 a.m.-noon at the Hotel Mono Azul Tiki Hut. Camp includes a snack and all necessary materials, and costs ₡2,500 ($5) per person. All proceeds will go to saving the rain forest.
