During the first quarter of 2024, the South American Initiative (SAI) provided significant aid to one zoo and two animal refuges, supplying essential food. In January, 433.84 lbs of food were distributed, 539.58 lbs in February, and 668.66 lbs in March, totaling 1,642.08 lbs. These efforts ensure that a variety of animals, from reptiles to birds and mammals, receive the necessary nutrition for their well-being, reflecting SAI's commitment to animal care and conservation.

 

SAI's assistance includes a wide range of nutritious foods such as bananas, eggs, papaya, meats, oats, pumpkin, proteins, mango, watermelon, powdered milk, carrots, corn, and more. This diverse supply is designed to meet the specific dietary needs of the animals, contributing to their health and vitality. Additionally, the organization provides specialized food for mice, which is crucial for maintaining a balanced ecosystem in shelters and zoos.

 

The species benefiting from this aid include turtles, snakes, lizards, birds of prey, and mammals such as sloths and the Guianan weeper capuchin. A notable case is the rescue and rehabilitation of a baby hawk at the Sans Souci Zoo. The dedication of the zoo keepers, supported by veterinarians, demonstrates a collective effort to rehabilitate and reintegrate animals into the wild. We deeply appreciate the generosity of our donors, whose contributions make these efforts possible, and we hope for their continued support to expand and enhance our initiatives. Your donations are vital to our mission of ensuring the well-being of animals across various refuges and zoos.
