CLASE DE BIOLOGÍA ANIMAL EN VIVO Y EN DIRECTO

Quiero compartirles una experiencia única que viví con mis dos hijos en un lugar  llamado Zoological Wildlife Foundation.

Samuel y Ari adoran los animales y en este lugar pudieron verlos, alimentarlos y hasta tocar algunos. Es un lugar diferente en el cual aprenden tanto grandes como pequeños pues sus guías son expertos conocedores de la naturaleza . Encontramos animales de todo tipo, desde un búho que nos miraba fijamente con sus ojos amarillentos hasta leones africanos muy juguetones.

Para mi esta experiencia fue como una clase de biología en vivo y en directo, nos enseñaron los mas íntimos secretos de los animales, sus hábitos y costumbres. Cargamos guacamayas, serpientes, alimentamos a un camello, a un oso hormiguero y hasta un osito bebe hizo parte del tour.

Aprendimos que:

  • “Las serpientes no son ni frías ni calientes, su temperatura depende de la temperatura del ambiente donde se encuentren” -  (Samuel)
  • “A los camellos les gustan las zanahorias “- (Ari)
  • “Los osos hormigueros no tienen dientes” – (Andrea)
  • “El oso hormiguero tiene una lengua muy larga” – (Ari)

Zoological Wildlife Foundation es un lugar privado y hay diferentes tipos de tours empezando desde $80 dólares y subiendo dependiendo de la experiencia que desees tener, también alquilan el lugar para eventos y cumpleaños para que lo tengas en el radar.

El costo del tour va subiendo acorde a la cantidad de animales que quieras tocar, a las fotos que desees tomar y adicionalmente hay  restricciones para tocar los animales.

Te recomiendo llamar para hacer todas las preguntas necesarias y reservar tu tour a tu medida con tu presupuesto y sin llevarte decepciones.

Si eres amante de los animales y has soñado con abrazar un león toda tu vida, este es un lugar seguro donde te enseñan las precauciones que debes tener por tu bien y el de los animales que hacen parte de esta gran familia.

They are very social and love company!

NIASSA CARNIVORE PROJECT

NIASSA CARNIVORE PROJECT

Promoting co-existence with Lions



ZWF Supports the Niassa Carnivore Project


The mission of the Niassa Carnivore Project is to conserve lions, African wild dogs and other large carnivores in the vast Niassa National Reserve (NNR) in Mozambique.

Niassa works in close collaboration with the Mozambican government, the Reserve Management Authority and local communities. Niassa is known for it’s wildlife conservation efforts with lions and African wild dogs. Lions are in crisis throughout Africa. There are approximately 35,000 wild lions left in the world today; approximately 1200 in the NNR. The Reserve is also home to more than 350 African wild dogs, which combined with the Selous Game Reserve population connected by the Selous-Niassa Wildlife Corridor is the second largest wild dog population remaining in the world today.

There are only an estimated 8000 African wild dogs remaining in Africa today.


It is critically important to protect these populations!


The biggest threat to these magnificent carnivores is human-wildlife conflict. When lion or dogs prey on livestock it invites retaliation from farmers in local communities. In the spirit of using these natural conflicts as an opportunity for education and change to protect these threatened species, Niassa’s focus is on “conflict transformation.” They incrementally transform the perception of local communities by providing advanced schooling, mentoring and scholarships to train young Mozambicans to become Conservation Biologists.

ZWF believes that creating educational and economic incentives to overcome human-carnivore conflict in local communities is the only way to instill the kind of value necessary to encourage conservation. Your donations will enable you to join the ZWF Conservation Team in Protecting Lions, Wild Dogs and other carnivores in Mozambique.



Thank you for your support!


LETTER OF APPRECIATION 8-2014

From: Sabrina Uribe Ruggiero <uribe_s@msn.com> Subject: Letter Of Appreciation

Sabrina & Peter Ruggiero 6490 SW 82nd Street Miami, FL 33143 uribe_s@msn.com

August 24, 2014 Greetings!

We would like to give thanks and recognition to a few amazing people inside your organization: Melanie Figueroa and Andrea Ramirez. Our son, Noah Ruggiero (five years-old), was diagnosed with Leukemia a year ago. He is an inspiration to our family and is responding to treatment amazingly well. His one passion in life, well, in addition to making people smile and laugh, is animals. He doesn1t just like tigers and eagles. That would be too easy. Ask him his favorites and he will tell you they are the Red-Tailed Hawk, a Peregrine Falcon, the Cotton-Top Monkey, a Servilewe could go on, but we think you get the picture.

Recently, we were invited to visit your zoo, free of charge, thanks to Melanie, one of your volunteers. Andrea and Melanie gave us the tour, and we couldn1t have been happier. Due to our financial situation since Noah1s diagnosis, this trip would never have been possible without Melanie1s help, and your organizations commitment to spreading happiness and knowledge. Noah1s Make-A-Wish is to meet the Wild Kratts (A PBS animal show) and have one-on-one time with his favorite animals. He and his sister, Alessandra have been patiently waiting for nearly 8-months, and this was a welcome diversion and prep to meet the Kratt brothers.

You are all amazing, and we would like to extend our heartfelt thanks and express our gratitude. Please keep doing what you are doing, and one day, Noah might just be working with you!

With sincere appreciation,
Sabrina, Peter, Alessandra and Noah Ruggiero

INTERNATIONAL TIGER DAY

 

tiger-day-web

 

Thank you for helping us raise awareness.

International tiger Day at ZWF Miami was a great success:

20% of all proceeds were donated to conservation programs that ZWF has identified as making a real difference in species survival.

 

What is International Tiger Day?

International Tiger Day is held annually on July 29 to give worldwide attention to the reservation of tigers. It is both an awareness day as a celebration. It was founded at the Saint Petersburg Tiger Summit in 2010.

This was done because at that moment wild tigers were too close to extinction.

Many animal welfare organizations pledged to help these wonderful creatures and are still helping to raise funds to reach this goal.

The goal of Tiger Day is to promote the protection and expansion of the wild tigers habitats and to gain support through awareness for tiger conservation.
