In the cover photo you see the gift we brought to the male leopard, a large piñata where the caretaker has added his breakfast, it has been awesome to see him in action, it has been a great hunt!

We’ve only had 2 days, but we’ve been very busy learning a lot from the animals we’ve visited and making enrichments - toys like this piñata you’ve seen.

NEW YEAR CAMP 3

We wanted to end the year learning a lot about nature and animals, to be good guardians of nature!

That’s why we’ve traveled all over the continents visiting amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. They have told us many curiosities and the dangers they have in their habitats to survive, all caused by us: humans.

Also that the Zoo exists to try to make many of the animals we have seen, and that do important work in the ecosystem where they live, disappear.

NEW YEAR CAMP 2

We are guardians of nature!

We travel around the world to see where animals live and what problems they have in their home! If we know this we can fix it.

With what we have learned, we will make the endangered animals that live in the Zoo, to prevent them from disappearing, the best they can be. That's why we have prepared toys for them, some with food inside and others without. We’ve seen Zoo keepers already do this work but we’ve helped them these days!

CAMP: CHRISTMAS LUNCH 3

We learn everything herbivorous, carnivorous and omnivorous animals eat in their habitat and also how they do it. Some migrate when they can't find them, others feed on herbs, leaves, fruits or seeds. Some have to hunt alone or have more complicated strategies as they hunt in groups. Others have to hibernate when they do not find food in their habitat or accumulate a lot of food when they live in places where there is not much, such as the desert.

PERE IV SCHOOL VISITS THE SAVANNAH AND THE GIRAFFES!

The little ones in P4 are the class of giraffes and have come early in the morning to find the animals that share habitat with them like zebras, wildebeests, ostriches, elephants and lions!

Just as they arrive, the zebras have come out of their stable to greet them! They have seen them up close and the Zoo educator has explained many things about them, we continued to see the wildebeest who were very busy smelling their yard.

When we got to the ostrich we saw that it was very big, and we were told that it was a female that ran a lot because she couldn't fly!
