Can you believe that it’s been whole week since we introduced our new students? Unfortunately we had to say goodbye to Grace and Leo yesterday, as work commitments back in Washington, DC only afforded them a week with us. We still have five students left however, so let’s see what everyone’s been up to since they arrived.
FROM THE STUDENTS
With our first week already under the belt, we have lots to tell about all the exciting things we’ve done so far. We finally know our way around the Centre, and can identify all of its residents (animal and human) on sight. Win!
HESC welcomed two new additions this week. First to arrive was a leopard rescued from unfortunate circumstances, and second was a Bateleur eagle that had flown into electric lines and injured its wing really badly. We had the opportunity to visit the vet when one of the cheetahs cut its foot, and also to assist when the vet amputated the eagle’s wing.Â One of our more fun activities included helping Mrs Roode organise painting classes for the cheetah cubs. The resulting paw print paintings show a lot of artistic promise.
