December 5th was a Wildlife Day for our top performing students at Iruri Primary School. The top three students in class 1 thru 8 were awarded by our non profit Iruri Primary School Sharing a Vision to a full day of Safari, lunch at Sweetwaters and a conservation lesson with each student planting a tree. Congratulations!!!! The day began with rain but cleared up. They saw lots of animals, visited Jane Goodall’s Chimp Sanctuary and the Rhino Sanctuary. A wonderful day!

Part of the conservation lesson is the planting of trees for reforestation.

Stop at the equator
As they left Sweetwaters they saw a stalking lion! They had not seen one yet so they were thrilled as we headed to the Equator sign for a final photo. The lion had been walking this direction so we ran for a quick photo and ran back! They were so excited! Until next year.
