Letter of the Week from Ex Keeper Holly

Sorry it's been a while since I last messaged,I have been extremely busy! 

Things are going really well here and I am loving the course. Made some awesome new friends and can't believe how much I have learned so far and how much more there is still to learn! I don't think you ever stop learning here out in the bush.

Where do I begin, the topics I have covered so far include mammals, amphibians, arthropods, ethology, taxonomy, botany, reptiles, viewing potentially dangerous animals, grasses and geology to name a few! 

Last semester we had a whole week dedicated to tracking, basically a whole week staring at the ground. Doesn't sound very exciting but it was so interesting. Learning how to identify and interpret tracks and signs or as they call it 'reading the bush newspaper'! 

Last week I was also very fortunate to be on the game drive vehicle that tracked and found a pride of 9 Lions!! Just magical.

I have attached a few photos.

Hope all is well at Seaview and that the park had a busy summer holidays. The new rat Alfie is so cute.

Love to everyone and all the animals :)
Holly xx
