b2ap3_thumbnail_5-25-Narasimhan.JPGEverything is going very well here at the sanctuary. We had a couple of visitors this week, all Panamanian businessmen and their families. They were very interested to hear about the work we are doing here with the monkeys and our research. All of their businesses are devoted to sustainability and conservation, and they are not alone. Throughout Central America, these ideas are beginning to trend in areas such as agriculture and the building of infrastructure. It was extremely interesting to learn about all the things their businesses are doing and the possibilities of a more sustainable world. It would really be amazing if more and more businesses adopted these policies. 

I wrote about some of the research we are doing on different types of teak plantations and which are the most sustainable. Hopefully, when our research is done, it will be used to make more responsible decisions about how teak plantations are made. This is just one example of the type of work that is being done, and all around the world it is really making an impact. I love learning about the different ways we can help make our home a better place for us right now and for future generations.
