Jackie & I made the trip to SF for the WCN (Wildlife Conservation Network) conference last weekend. Jane Goodall gave the keynote address about conservation of species and habitats and how people need to be aware & involved with protecting wild things & wild places. Wild Wonders/Zoofari is very involved with conservation, listening to grassroots biologists speak about their individual projects worldwide and choosing those projects Zoofari will support. Great things are happening with projects Zoofari has been supporting over the years. If you would like to learn more about these rewarding conservation efforts, drop us a line & we will add you to our database for our quarterly newsletter updates.
You wouldn’t think it takes any training for a Cheetah to run, would you? Well, training is just what it takes. Since Victor was born in S. Africa to be a Conservation Ambassador, running & chasing at top speed had to be taught by his surrogate Mom’s. Recently we have been training Victor to recognize an inanimate object as a prey item. No easy feet for a wild cat designed to chase live prey. After the chasing is ingrained, then the stopping part comes in. Luckily, Victor is enamored by Linda, his primary trainer and will just about follow her anywhere. Stay tuned for updates & photos of his training & the announcement of his “Big Day,” where he will hopefully run at a top speed of 70mph to catch his “prize!”
