Hi. I saw the pic published in the natgeo Instagram page and I dislike the fact you called it “captive” and because of the way the Pope’s villager’s walls are it looks like it is on a cage when in fact it is just hanging from a wall :/
@cherrycharris I'm not sure what you mean but this sloth was in a cage made of wood.
@kirstenluce it was an autocorrect mistake, I meant poor’s villagers walls. I actually visited Puerto Alegria in 2015 and I took pictures with the animals, it is rather the safest way for a tourist to both see them and interact with them and it does creat awareness of the animals that live in the rainforest whilst providing an income for the locals. I understand how it can be perceived as bad... but nothing is black or white. I understand that as a photographer you tell your story and that is what you wanted to tell... all your other pictures are very nice. Sorry to bother you.
@cherrycharris I never implied anything is black or white. The story is in my profile if you'd like to read more.
He's planning his getaway.
