Our first Red Uakari sighting from the tower! We've completed the third floor of the tower and have the supporting structures for the fourth floor in place. During a quiet moment in the late afternoon, we heard a large group of Red Uakari moving just north of the tower, feeding on fruit in the surrounding trees. We were able to glimpse the group as they traveled south around the tower, and a few curious individuals came in for a closer look. We hope that they will continue to accept the tower as part of the environment, allowing us fantastic viewing opportunities of this rare and endangered species.
