What a special treat for the Year 2 children this week; a trip to the Big Cat Sanctuary. On our way to the classroom, we walked past the famous Maya, the black jaguar of TV fame. We found out later that we were the first group of schoolchildren that she has seen. The children impressed the keepers with their knowledge of the layers in the rainforests and their location near the equator. We all learned about the importance of conservation and the impact that deforestation is having on the survival of the big cats. Our tour of the enclosures was a spectacular experience that we will never forget. Thank you Big Cat Sanctuary!
