Dear Santa... Thank you for our wonderful donors!

Dear Donors,

How are you doing since the last report? Here at DAKTARI, days are full of joy and we go from one surprise to another! The end of the year is around the corner, so let’s finish 2014 off with a bang! :)

DAKTARI is so grateful for all that you have done so far to help the underprivileged children attend our environmental program for a week. If you could see the smiles on their faces when they interact with the animals, learn to take care of them, feed them. Or when they are with the volunteers, learning about environment, tourism and job opportunities, visiting a Game Logde. This is so heart warming to see how much more polite and respectuful they are by the end of the week. Hearing them saying that they will never forget DAKTARI and what they have learnt is evidence of their appreciation.

I received a message from a student who came at DAKTARI a year ago:

“Hi Daktari! How is Daktari doing? I just wanna tell you that the tree (nam nam tree) that you gave me last year, is growing well and i will always give that tree water because is making me to remember Daktari :-):-):-). One last thing: feed Maxi well because i love Maxi too much. I would like to thank you Daktari for everything you did to me. I wish you all the best as we are going to year of 2015. Enjoy the rest of your day!!!” (Relius, 16)

Dear Donors,

How are you doing since the last report? Here at DAKTARI, days are full of joy and we go from one surprise to another! The end of the year is around the corner, so let’s finish 2014 off with a bang! :)

For Christmas, join DAKTARI in offering the animals a special festive season! They have been soooo good this year, with many families being raised, so trust me, they really diserve it!

Ohhh, you didn’t know about the new babies? Well, they are SO adorable!

  • We were given a little warthog in November, that was only 2 weeks old. Her mom had been killed and so she left behind her baby that DAKTARI rescued. It has taken a lot of care, attention and food for this piglet to not only grow, but to thrive. We had to take her to the vet because she was very fragile and, after some special baby milk, Piggy now starts to gobble everything in her way!
  • Our marmosets have had 2 new babies! We have 5 Marmosets now! Princess Leila, King Kong, Moogli and the 2 babies. What a happy and beautiful family!
  • Remember that I told you about the arrival of Madonna, a female meerkat. Since that day, Gaspar and Tikki, our two other male meerkats, have had some “fun” with her. Result: 3 addorable babies meerkats ever!!! Look at the picture, you can only love them!

DAKTARI’s animal familly is getting bigger and we are so proud of that. But it also means more fees to provide healthy food and good care for them. 2014 has been such a great year and we are proud of all the rescues, releases, new babies, which all happened thanks to your on-going support! We are so grateful for that.

DAKTARI relies on your generosity during Christmas, so we can continue spoiling all these orphaned animals for 2015! Please donate to our project, share the link on your social media or via email, speak about it to your friends and encourage them to join our cause.

For a memorable Christmas, you can also make a donation on behalf of someone special, and DAKTARI will send you a virtual gift recipient via email to give to them.
