This amateur video has been shot in front of the house (Daplac cove Boayan Island)
We live with the animals in their natural element: the birds - kingfishers, eagles, hawks, hornbills, orioles, parrots, the scrub fowl who bury their eggs in the sand...; the reptiles - geckos, giant monitor lizards and frogs and the monkeys who visit the vegetable gardens from time to time; enough butterflies to please Nabokov and the gamut of insects who announce the dawn and the dusk. It is for them that we have tried to preserve the eleven hectares that surround the house. We are proud to say that we have been able to save some patches of virgin forest.

In trying to preserve the land we try to preserve the sea as well for we also live with the once numerous inhabitants of the sea: the sea turtles who come to lay their eggs on shore; the rays that glide through the water; the giant groupers and moray eels who live amongst the coral; the parrot fish, the clown fish, the angel fish, the butterfly, etc... and the jack, the barracuda, the king mackerel, the red snapper which tastes like lobster...the creatures who lorded it over the sea till man decided they were his for the taking, the selling and the trading…their habitats being destroyed in the process their numbers diminish…
