On Wednesday our Monkey Rescue Centre and the Canaote Botanic Garden received a visit from Staff and students from Unellez.(Universidad de los Llanos Ezequiel Zamora). Three local professors and a visiting professor from Brazil were among our guests. The party arrived in a Unellez bus. It was my pleasure to introduce the group to all our children. Some of the students entered enclosures and were greeted by our Howler monkeys. One of our pictures shows Manina giving his traditional greeting to a student. David was on hand to conduct the group around our botanic garden. Later he gave a demonstration of hybridizing adenium plants. The group clearly enjoyed the trip and our children, as ever loved the attention that visitors always show. The visit of course cements the friendly relationship that exists between us and the two universities in San Carlos. Both David and I have lectured in both Universities La Salle and Simon Rodriquez.
