Here's to the Future Generations
We had a amazing presentation a few nights ago for a girl's 8th birthday/slumber party. The animals and us had a great time teaching the girls about nocturnal animals and answering some very good questions. They were very interested in how the animals had come to live at Animal Wonders. We don't usually get such animal care activists in the audience and were quite pleased. The next most common questions were those about why the animals was doing what it was doing. They were observing the animal's behavior and then asking why they would do that and we would explain what they were doing and why, and most of the time it related to a behavior they would do in the wild. I would like to take my hat off to the young ladies because it's exactly what we want to inspire in the next generation: ask questions, find answers, and continue to explore the natural world. The best way to help animals is to learn as much as you can about them. We can't help them if we don't know how.
The other thing I would like to mention about this particular presentation was the absolutely amazing birthday girl. She sponsored an animal and after the presentation she gave us a present! She had asked all her friends to bring donations to Animal Wonders instead of bringing her a gift. Now that left me speechless! At eight years old she was demonstrating more generosity than most adults can claim. So, thank you Berit! May you have the most wonderful year!!!
