Student update – 24 August 2012

Students at Provet blStudents at the vet with the King Cheetah

This week we have been very busy doing a variety of things including working in the butchery, feeding and cleaning at the Centre. We have also visited two vets – one who operated on a king cheetah and a vulture, and the other where we learned about foot and mouth disease and its prevention in the local community.

So far we have seen four of the Big Five – lion, rhino, buffalo and elephant around Kapama Reserve. We’ve also watched two male cheetahs enjoying their freshly killed impala. Also, we had a very exciting sighting when we got to see a pangolin in the wild!
