After years of keeping goats, sheep and wild roaming donkeys out the results are clear and visible!

Native trees have been planted by me or have self seeded and are slowly growing and thus making the lodge's area attractive for our flying visitors.

From the lodge's various viewpoints you can see an interesting mixture of indigenous birds and animals.

Parrots suffering from deforestation on the island can still find a safe haven here.

Also migrating birds use our area at various times throughout the year to have a rest.

On the pictures you can see some of the very frequent flyers. Click on the thumbnails to see enlargements of these stunning photographs.

But even in the night the fun doesn't stop!

Bats are plentiful and every night they are working hard to eat moths and other little creatures.

The nectar eating bat is also a returning visitor and pollinates the cacti every night.

"Typically we do not like to go back to previous destinations as places tend to change and not always for the better. A prejudice so untrue for Auriga Ecolodge!! After we were one of the first guests in 2010 to this place, we returned in February only to be delighted again. This is the place to stay if you prefer the beauty of the Bonaire outdoors over the cosmetic luxury of a hotel. "
