DAKTARI Newsletter - Jan, Feb and March.

  1. 1. By Amy Hulme Marketing Manager Hello! After a slow start to the year, I am pleased to say that we are now back on our feet and well into 2014! January, February and March have flown by but not without 70 + children passing through, 6 new animals and a range of enclosure updates around the camp. As always, we have to thank you for your continued support that keeps us going. I hope you enjoy the following slides with a round up of the best bits – all the best, Amy Hulme.
  2. 2. 2 daktaribushschool.org DAKTARI TV STARS! In February we welcomed back Celia, who filmed the DAKTARI documentary that aired in December. This time she brought her students with her and they will all produce their own short films about DAKTARI to support our marketing. Thank you so much!  ENCLOSURE UPGRADES! Thanks to the amazing support we received at Christmas time for our virtual gifts, we were able to upgrade many enclosures with comfy hammocks, tunnels and ladders. Gasper and Tiki were very happy!
  3. 3. 3 daktaribushschool.org VALENTINES LOVING! We had a wonderful February and a wonderful Valentines Day thanks to all who contributed to our Sponsor a Child and Donate to an Animal campaigns on Global Giving. Some of the funds raised allowed these beautiful girls to attend DAKTARI over the Valentines week. RELEASING THE DASSIES Sadly we found a few unexplained dead baby Dassies in our enclosure. We made the decision to release them all and they have stayed around the camp! During the release we rescued one baby who is now part of the family. More on him in the following slides 
  4. 4. 4 daktaribushschool.org “AIN‟T NO PARTY LIKE A DAKTARI STREET PARTY!” March 15th saw the return of our famous Street Party! 1 dirt road, surrounded by game reserves, braai-ing sausages and beer under the African stars– what more could you want? A big thanks to everyone who came along, it was a lot of fun and raised 3,500 Rand for DAKTARI. We‟ll drink to that!  More mad pictures on our Facebook page.
  5. 5. 5 MRS STRAUSS‟S STRESSFUL DAY In February, Poor Mrs Strauss our female ostrich suffered a serious laceration to the back of her neck. We are not sure how it happened but as soon as we noticed it the Vet had to be called. Even after darting her, it took a few hands to hold her still and keep her temperature down from the mid-day sun. Thankfully after cleaning, stitching, dressing the wound - and an added vet bill, Mrs Strauss made a full recovery  daktaribushschool.org
  6. 6. daktaribushschool.org Hello, I‟m Cachou the baby Dassie. I love to eat mango and jump on the dinner table! Michele is my mum and I am definitely her favourite  I am Coco, the wise old Giant Eagle Owl. I am a mature bird and I don‟t care for noise. I am happy to be living out my retirement at Daktari. Hi I‟m Stoffles! I was hand raised by a family and they let me go free. But I was too scared, so I scratched at someone's door and they brought me to Daktari. I love my new girlfriend Nwana  My name is Nwana, it means „baby‟ in Sepedi language. I‟m very cheeky and I love to go for walks and catch insects. Stoffles is my new boyfriend – but I wear the trousers! I‟m Irishka! It‟s a Russian name. I am about 6 weeks old, but I can cry very loud when I want something! I love to eat big juicy worms and to sleep on my hot water bottle.
  7. 7. 7 daktaribushschool.org During the months of January, February and March we gave 79 children an educational week at DAKTARI. We couldn’t do it without YOU! Thank you 
  8. 8. COMMUNITY HOME STAYS DAKTARI Outreach Programme is very excited with their new community home stays. This great new partnership with families in The Oaks village means that our volunteers can stay with a local African family, for one or two nights, for the ultimate cultural experience at just 300 Rand. All the money goes to the families providing them with extra income generation for their families. So far, all the volunteers have thoroughly enjoyed it. For more info visit www.daktaribushschool.org and click on community projects. daktaribushschool.org
  9. 9. SOLAR COOKER Coming soon to the Oaks Village! The Outreach team have sourced a supplier of solar cookers and very soon, Tshepo, our solar representative will be selling them in her own community. We hope to reduce the cutting of trees for fire wood, reduce the cooking relating labour of women and promote sustainable, affordable living alternatives. Keep an eye on the Outreach Facebook page for the latest updates! daktaribushschool.org SUCCESS STORIES! We are over the moon for Kutullo who has successfully passed his driving license, and for Portia who got the job as a housekeeper at Shikwari Bush Lodge! Well done guys 
  10. 10. 10 daktaribushschool.org CATHERINE PERKINS CARACAL CAMP This is a HUGE thank you to the lovely Catherine Perkins for sponsoring the extension of our Caracal, Shangaan‟s, enclosure. The building and furnishing is now complete and Shangaan is absolutely loving his new space to roam. It is wonderful to see him in his new and improved home. Thank you again Catherine 
  11. 11. 11 Werner Fischer from the company Flexopower who donated 10 solar panels for DAKTARI! They will provide efficient, cost effective and sustainable power to our camp.
