From our volunteer Mia Skjoldager

Zebra
Zebra

By Mia Skjoldager:

My name is Mia Maja Skjoldager, I am 24 years old and I come from Denmark. I’ve been at Daktari for 3 weeks now out of 3 months. While I have been here I’ve taught children about the environment, animals and how we should behave around people and animals.

The Leopard Shiloweni is doing fine. First time I met him he charged straight towards me, and did it a couple of times. I must say it did make me sweat a bit. Two weeks ago we found a dead baby zebra (probably died of natural causes), and the landowner gave us permission to feed it to the leopard. Another volunteer and I dragged it in to his enclosure. In the beginning he was just watching it from a distance, but when we drove of, he took it and dragged it into the bush :-).

Meet Jumper!

Meet Jumper, a Verreaux’s (Black) Eagle who came to Daktari last week. Jumper had a broken wing and had to have most of it amputated. Although he cannot fly, he is still very quick on the ground as he jumps around his cage, hence his name!!

The children were really excited to meet him but a little bit nervous because of his size.  Jumper is about 60cm tall and has VERY big talons.  He is a brilliant edition to the orphanage as we have never had a black eagle before and the children can study his behavior at close hand.

Just a reminder that Bonus day is coming up, GlobalGiving offers YOU a 50% match on your donation on the 12th June.
