On Monday our regular visit from ‘Earthwatch’ commenced with 9 visitors from Kenya, the USA, and the UK. The team, from a variety of professioEarthwatch Group.JPGns including teaching and zoo keeping are here to study Sykes Monkeys in the forest region around Gede Ruins. They have a particular interest in the difference in seed dispersion between those groups often fed by the tourists and those that are totally self sufficient and how this affects the sustainability of the forest itself. The group will stay with us for 10 days and are already making mealtimes more lively.
