Someone asked yesterday if we have a map to get a better idea of the lay of the land. We have google maps, but that’s no fun. You can really tell what the property really looks like. So instead we’re using a drone photo. This doesn’t include the full property, it extends East, which would be through the bottom of the photo in both directions. The orange lines are the borders on the West and North mostly.
The photo doesn’t remotely do the property justice, at least that’s what every single person that visits the property tells us. Above the ‘Asian Barn’, literally just on the other side of the road from where the barn is, is the sea of palms is and where the Asian males will live- extending up the hill. The split between the Asian barn and African barn properties is about 3/4 of the way between the two, closer to Africa. The only other noticeable landmark is the first pond in the Asian habitat. It looks like a tiny puddle, but helps with perspective.
So…just a little glimpse of the stunning property that makes up the sanctuary. Enlarge it, looks closely for the hills, valleys, thick treed areas that indicate water (and monkeys) and enjoy. It’s truly spectacular.
