News letter June 2018 1

Another month has passed already!


If you follow us on our social media then you have definitely heard about Pacou already. But if you haven't - this is his story:

Pacou was brought to us a few weeks ago after he was found wandering around all by himself. We put him in our quarantined camp in the garden so he could calm down and get used to his new environment in peace.

We were trying very hard to get him to drink because antelopes are known for being hard to raise. Because we know a lot of you like getting a behind the scenes look into what we do at our camp, we decided to show you how we feed Pacou. You can click on the picture above to check it out!


The Easter Bunny came by!

Because our volunteers worked so hard these last few weeks, we decided to give them a little treat. And what better way to do that than by organising a little Easter Egg Hunt?

On Friday afternoon we all met up in the lapa while some of our staff hid the eggs for us.

As you can see by their smiles, our volunteers had a lot of fun. It was a great way to give them a little extra and show them how much we appreciate their help.


Baba exploring the camp

Baba, one of our dassies, got sick a while ago. He had an abscess in his mouth which made it hard for him to eat.

After taking him to the vet for treatment, we decided to isolate him as the other dassies were bullying him. Unfortunately, this is what wild animals do when one of them is sick or weak.

He loves plopping down in the sun and getting his tan on or napping on the couch in the lapa. When he's done napping he joins our office team and steals some of the dogs' food. He even jumps on top of our printer to make sure everyone is busy at work!


Showing that we CARE


Last Friday some of our staff and long-term volunteers went over to C.A.R.E. for a tour of their place. C.A.R.E. is an animal rehabilitation and education centre specialising in baboons. We were happy to be able to visit them.

After a very interesting and informative introduction we were shown around the centre. We saw the animal clinic, where they take care of the babies, the kitchen and we were even allowed to take a look while they introduced a baby baboon to its new surrogate mother.

We were all very impressed and we support everything C.A.R.E. does. So if anyone is interested in knowing more about C.A.R.E. and what they do for the baboons, be sure to check out their website here!
