Volunteer Project 2 – Madagascar

THANK YOU!

Before we provide an overview of our experience volunteering in Sainte Luce, Madagascar, we wanted to firstly thank all those that donated to this cause. Madagascar is one on Africa’s poorest nations and endangered ecosystems. The life expectancy for men is 52 and women is 55. Roughly 12% of people die before the age of 5.

65% of the population in Madagascar fall below the recognised International poverty line of $1.25USD per day.

 

RV Trip USA – San Diego Zoo

Javan Rhinos are rare. Pete was really excited to see them in the flesh

San Diego Zoo is renowned as one of the best zoos in the world. Pete had always wanted to visit this place so we got back on the road and headed down from LA to San Diego. San Diego is extremely close to the Mexican border and is about two hours from LA.
This zoo really is an incredible place and deserves it first class status. It has a terrific range of animals (4000 or s0), like giant pandas, Indian rhinos and polar bears to name a few and most of the exhibits in which the animals are displayed are fantastic. Both enriching/stimulating for the animals and pleasant to look at for the visitor.
