Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #108 – Sanctuary

The Lens-Artists Challenge is hosted this week by Xenia.

Birds of Eden is the world’s largest free flight aviary and bird sanctuary, located in Kurland village near Plettenberg Bay in the Western Cape, South Africa. The mesh dome of the sanctuary was built over 2.3 hectares of indigenous forest, and is up to 55 metres above ground level.

Birds of Eden is home to about 220 different types of birds, and more than 3500 birds live in the sanctuary.

Their award winning bird sanctuary provides a forever home where previously caged birds can live a life of free-flight in a habitat as large and natural as is possible.

The feathered inhabitants of the aviary are comprised of a mixture of exotic, as well as African birds.
