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 :-).
