Since we introduced our latest intake of students, we’ve had another three arrive. So far we’ve managed to coax an update out of Renuka and Ana. It seems the others are all too busy chopping up meat and getting to know the Centre’s younger residents to write down their experiences. And with cheetah cubs as cute as ours, who can blame them? This is also a very busy time at HESC, so we unfortunately won’t have time to post another update until the New Year. We’d like to take this opportunity to wish you all a fantastic festive season, and we’ll see you in 2012.
FROM: Â RENUKA SOLEY
I arrived here on Saturday to a warm welcome from Karen and Tabs, and later that evening I enjoyed my first South African braai. The smell of the African bush, along with a soothing wood fire and lions roaring in the background was just magical. On Saturday some of us were taken on a tour through the Centre. We were up early on Monday morning, as we had to prepare the meat for the big cats. Just as we finished a call came through asking us to go and help with the darting of some of the Wild dogs. This was quite an experience.Â We then fed the big cats, and later went back to collect the bones. We ended the day by feeding and playing with the six cheetah cubs. Beats a Monday at work in the UK anytime!
