KING'S CAMP 3

We learned a lot from the animals with the help of the Zoo educator and our companions!

So we visited different animals, to whom we gave a gift that they loved, like the sweets we gave to the warthogs and many more surprises to other animals!

We also had some surprises and one that impressed us a lot was being able to see invertebrates such as a tarantula, a crab, a thousand feet or a scorpion that glows with ultraviolet light! We have been very brave!

Finally, we came home very excited with all the experiences we had with the animals at the Zoo!

KING'S CAMP 2

We have been very busy these two days!

We had little time to learn to be guardians of nature but we made the most of it! And that doesn’t end there, what we learned at the Zoo is the beginning !. Because from home we can also save nature and the species that live there by making small changes in our daily lives that do not require much effort!

In addition, now, in winter, we can make dining rooms for the little birds that right now find it difficult to find food and hang them on the balcony or in the garden.

In the cover photo you see the gift we brought to the male leopard, a large piñata where the caretaker has added his breakfast, it has been awesome to see him in action, it has been a great hunt!

We’ve only had 2 days, but we’ve been very busy learning a lot from the animals we’ve visited and making enrichments - toys like this piñata you’ve seen.

NEW YEAR CAMP 3

We wanted to end the year learning a lot about nature and animals, to be good guardians of nature!

That’s why we’ve traveled all over the continents visiting amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. They have told us many curiosities and the dangers they have in their habitats to survive, all caused by us: humans.

Also that the Zoo exists to try to make many of the animals we have seen, and that do important work in the ecosystem where they live, disappear.

NEW YEAR CAMP 2

We are guardians of nature!

We travel around the world to see where animals live and what problems they have in their home! If we know this we can fix it.

With what we have learned, we will make the endangered animals that live in the Zoo, to prevent them from disappearing, the best they can be. That's why we have prepared toys for them, some with food inside and others without. We’ve seen Zoo keepers already do this work but we’ve helped them these days!

CAMP: CHRISTMAS LUNCH 3

We learn everything herbivorous, carnivorous and omnivorous animals eat in their habitat and also how they do it. Some migrate when they can't find them, others feed on herbs, leaves, fruits or seeds. Some have to hunt alone or have more complicated strategies as they hunt in groups. Others have to hibernate when they do not find food in their habitat or accumulate a lot of food when they live in places where there is not much, such as the desert.

CAMP : CHRISTMAS LUNCH 2

Grass, feed, meat, fish, insects, vegetables (zucchini, lettuce, celery, leeks, tomatoes ...), seasonal fruits (apples, pears, bananas, oranges ...) caram how many different types of food !. They are all kept in the warehouse, where the zookeepers and we go to order food for the different animals.

Of course, not everyone eats the same thing, there are herbivores like the elephant, giraffe, giant turtle or rhino, carnivores like lions, crocodiles, meerkats or storks and omnivores like chimpanzees and bears .

ISABEL DE VILLENA SCHOOL DISCOVERS THE VERTEBRATES!

Fourth graders have visited us to discover the differentiating features of vertebrate groups!

They have come to delve deeper into the subject as they had worked some animals from each group. So we have reviewed the most important characteristics, reproduction, and feeding, which they have been able to see in front of the animals, and their ecological role !.
