Our dassie are doing great and the family has grown!
Our lady dassie “princess” was getting fat and we were thinking of putting her on a diet when we had the surprise one morning that she had given birth to 3 babies. It was the first time for Princess to have babies and she was very embarrassed not knowing what to do. We let nature and instinct kick in but unfortunately two babies died. She is now in a private enclosure and taking good care of her last baby, both looking very healthy. Soon they will join the whole Dassie family in their new enclosure renovated by Marina our Animal Assistant.
Thank you for your contribution to the care of our dassies!

Ten months ago we received a baby bush pig called Molly. She was only 6 months!
Our volunteers and children had a lot of fun with Molly. She loved playing with them and became famous for her incredible football skills!
Molly has been a great ambassador of DAKTARI and taught our children the importance of taking care of the animals and the environment.
A few days ago Molly left DAKTARI to move to a new home with much more space! She is now based in a neighboring reserve where she is free to enjoy the bush.
Although we are sad to see her go, we are delighted she will have freedom.
Thank you for your contribution to the care of Molly. Without your generous support, we wouldn't be where we are today!

Welcome back to the DAKTARI newsletter,
This is a short message to say Thank You for your wonderful support of Jumper, our DAKTARI black eagle!
Jumper is doing well and enjoys the update on his enclosure with physical habitat enrichment. The goal is to improve his environment and care based on his natural behavior and instincts.
He loves to be visited daily by the children and volunteers who are impressed by his beauty!
Keeping all the animals at DAKTARI healthy and happy is an utmost priority that we are able to achieve thanks to you!
