Our first visit to the Drill monkeys with spectators on both sides of the electric fence (see pic below). There are five enclosures that house the 400+ monkeys, many which have been bred in captivity. They plan to reintroduce ~100 monkeys into the wild in the next year or so and their progress will be monitored.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner for the drills and chimps consists of plantains, bananas, avocados, ground nuts, and more. We enjoyed the avocados!
