Happy cheetah

We are happy to report that Martin is doing very well!


We try to keep him active by stimulating him with his food. In December, we gave a Christmas present to Martin. In it we hid pieces of meat and put the present in the middle of the enclosure.

We were very surprised by his reaction, because he was so interested in this present. First he lay down to unwrap the gift and discover what was inside. And then Martin took the box and went behind trees to eat peacefully and destroy the rest of the present. 

Once again he was a very happy cheetah with his Christmas present!

Bye 2018, welcome 2019

2018 was again a busy year for us!


We welcomed 172 international volunteers coming from all over the world to teach our local children. In the meantime, 333 kids came to DAKTARI to learn about environment and care about their wildlife.

In December we welcomed our last group of children with a Christmas spirit. Like every year, the kids and the volunteers decorated the Christmas tree and the lapa. Even the dogs joined the party!  

We hope 2019 is going to be even more busy: more projects, more volunteers, more exciting news! And of course, with all of you by our side!!!

New year, bigger projects

After a month off for the Christmas holiday, the Outreach Program is back in full swing.


The Job Hunting Program started off with a bang this year! The first week of January we welcomed 7 local young adult students to join us for a week of learning. They spent 5 days here learning how to write a CV and cover letters, basic computer skills, setting up an email account and crucial interviewing skills.

We have also started back with our Eco Clubs in two neighboring secondary schools. With 50 students attending each orientation we know we’re going to have big and exciting classes this year! We have also started a new and improved recycling program here at DAKTARI and hope to include that in our teaching programs.
