Bird Watching at Fond Doux Estate

St Lucia has well-established itself as a destination for sun and sea, but the verdant, geographically intriguing island offers so much more to the visitor. St Lucia is part of the Windward Island grouping in the Caribbean Sea which forms part of the archipelago linking North and South America. As such, it is uniquely placed in the migratory route of many birds and is home to at least five endemic species, several subspecies and many Caribbean endemics. Its relatively small size and easy navigability make the island an ideal bird watching destination.

The town of Soufriere, an historical town nestled at the base of quickly rising slopes into the rain-forested interior of the island, has long boasted a dynamic and varied bird life. Relatively undeveloped and naturally protected, Soufriere and its environs are home to a number of fascinating bird species. It is also the easiest access route to the forested interior where many of the endemic species can be found. The St Lucian rainforests undisturbed, fertile landscape supports a diverse tropical plant life, and as a result has become something of a bird sanctuary.

Three species of hummingbird found on the island, including the Purple Throated Carib, a dark bird with a brilliant, iridescent purple throat, the curved beaked Green Throated Carib and the tiny but distinctive Antillian Crested Hummingbird make this part of the island their home, though increasingly, with the end of commercially crop dusting, more and more of the species are being seen in the lower lying areas of the island. The remarkable endemic Amazona Versicolor, a parrot species unique to the island nation also makes its home in the rain forest; it favours the Gwi gwi berry, fruit of a prickly palm that is in abundance on this part of the island. Famously elusive, the Amazona Versicolor, or Jacquot as it is locally known, is an endemic brightly plumaged parrot that is also the islands national bird. Jacquot is more often heard than sighted, its call is unique, but has been known to reward those who are patient.

The St Lucia Oriole, another endemic, is a particularly exciting sighting. It bears distinctive orange-yellow markings on its underside and wings which stand out against its predominantly black plumage. The ubiquitous Lesser Antillean Bullfinch is no stranger to even the most casual bird watcher. The male is black with a bright red throat, the female is dun coloured. They are often found in pairs and quite likely to approach you on your veranda, particularly if there is a bowl of fruit around.

Because of the abundance of fruit trees, the protective mountainous terrain and rainforest canopy, bird watching in St Lucia is both an incidental affair for the arm chair birder, as well as a rewarding excursion for the dedicated enthusiast.

Bolivia Volunteers – Santa Cruz Zoo Project

Commenting on the introduction of the Santa Cruz Zoo Volunteer project, Willson Marshal, Bolivia Volunteers Administrator says,

This is a very exciting time for us here at Bolivia Volunteers, and in the short time since we introduced the project at the Zoologico Municipal Fauna Sudamericana we have been amazed by the number of inquiries and offers of assistance we have received.

Of course we have offered projects caring for neglected and abandoned domestic animals in several cities across Bolivia for many years, but the prospect of being able to spend time at the Santa Cruz Zoo with our indigenous wildlife puma, llama, carpincho, tapir, pink dolphins, flamingo, condor and many more has really fired the imagination of our volunteers.

And Pascal Deneuve from Creuzier-le-vieux, France – currently at the Zoo on a two month volunteer placement adds.

Ive always been an animal lover, but of course thats really only for dogs and cats back home but here at the Santa Cruz Zoo Ive had real hands-on experience of caring for much larger and exotic animals.

At the moment Im working on upgrading the bird enclosures, doing some building and painting. The next assignment lined up for me look at is planning a diet regime for the big cats. This place is just SO special, nothing like the zoos back home and really does need all the help it can get.

In a recent global survey of several thousand volunteer travelers, over 75% chose South America as their preferred continent and of those, 65% commented that BOLIVIA the poorest South American country would be their first choice destination.

It is 10 years since the International Year of Volunteers in 2001 and through a UN General Assembly Resolution, this anniversary is being marked across the globe, with volunteering organizations world-wide promoting the values of volunteering, recognizing the value of volunteering, building and reinforcing volunteering networks, and helping individuals to realize their potential to make a real difference by sharing their time, skills and experience for the benefit of others.

The declaration of IYV+10, under the banner “Volunteer! Make a Difference”, is an acknowledgement of the important role of the volunteer sector, and aims to –

Build respect, trust, understanding and solidarity through volunteering;

Raise volunteerism on the development agenda;

Build partnerships; and

Define and empower global volunteering.

Chester Zoo – A Day Out With the Animals!

The quiet Cheshire countryside holds Britain’s favourite wildlife attraction the Chester Zoo. Noted as one of the fifteen best zoos in the world by Forbes in 2007, the family-owned organization is famous for its conservation efforts and displaying the biodiversity of the world in innovative ways. A visit to this zoo is a great way to spend an educative day with children of all ages.

When George Mottershead started collecting animals as a hobby, he ended up with quite a collection that needed more room. After he was wounded in the First World War, he worked to make his dream of a private zoo come true and opened Chester Zoo in 1931. Working with new ideas of Carl Hagenbeck the enclosures for the animals were not the classic Victorian cages but moats and trenches. One of its first major attractions was the Chimp Island, where the use of water was used to separate the chimps from the visitors for the first time in a zoo.

Initially just 9 acres, the zoo now covers 111 acres and can be navigated using various methods of transport. A monorail system that crisscrosses the grounds gives a great overview of all the animals. The canal network is also turned into a tour route during peak season with the water bus services. For those who want a closer look without the hassle of walking, hire a mobility scooter at the entrance.

But the stars of the place are the animals. Counting over 420 species, the zoo houses more than 9000 animals living in enclosures designed to resemble their natural habitats as closely as possible. An entire heard of Asian elephants live with monitor lizards, jungle fowl and other creatures of Asian origins. The ‘Spirit of Jaguar’ exhibit holds spotted jaguars and an elusive black panther along with tree boas and poison arrow frogs. Fruit bats, orang-utans and okapis are also animals who call this place home. Its successful chimpanzee and rhinoceros breeding programmes are well known as well.

Visiting the zoo’s extensive grounds can be a great day trip from any of the Millennium & Copthorne Hotels UK. With the seasonal and weekend offers given by the UK hotels specials you can take the weekend off into the countryside. Several of these 4 star UK hotels are situated near popular airports and stations, making for convenient transport options as well.

A Monkey Shower Curtain Is A Must Have For The Great Jungle Themed Bathroom

No matter if creating a made up bathroom for your children or you when youthful at heart as well as fun loving then you definitely can’t go wrong having adorable monkeys along with all their safari good friends. There is a huge variety of shower curtains out there featuring monkeys. There are classy designs with embroidered monkeys and bananas, together with lovely cartoon monkeys swinging amongst the vines. Among my favourites is the peek-a-boo monkey shower curtain with a clear viewing panel (perhaps for those who feel a little claustrophobic in the shower). Some styles are very simple with just printed monkey faces, team this with a matching floor rug and you have an instant monkey bathroom.

The safari collection I came across is especially sweet as they use a giraffe lotion pump, monkey soap dish, and an elephant for a toothbrush holder and a lion tumbler. You’ll be able to get monkey shower curtain hooks which will jazz up a plain curtain you already have or add the finishing touch to a new curtain. If you want to replace your toilet brush and holder even that is available with a monkey design. Wastebaskets come in a variety of materials (wood and resin) and are monkey or jungle themed too. Bathroom accessories tend to be either plastic or resin and can be decorated or relief. I particularly like the relief resin figures as they add a cute 3D effect to the bathroom really bringing the jungle alive! An excellent useful addition to your monkey bathroom would be a set of cute embroidered towels which come in either white or bright colours to complement your design. To save time trying to find co-ordinating accessories buy from a full range provided by one manufacturer such as the safari or the monkey business range and all the hard work is done for you.

If you look further afield than the bathroom department when shopping you will find monkey and jungle animal curtain tie backs to enhance your bathroom theme. Also a great range of art to decorate the walls, including decals which come in a variety of designs and most are removable. Check with the manufacturer first that they are suitable for wet areas like bathrooms. Please do not neglect your toilet when making over the bathroom – a padded toilet seat cover will add the perfect touch or have you seen the now great range of removable toilet seat tattoos available in round and elongated to suit most toilet seats. Start with your choice of favourite monkey shower curtain and let inspiration, imagination and creativity take you from there.

Make sure that you are aware of what rights you are entitled to with that particular insurance policy. These policies can get quite tricky, so make sure that you have gotten exactly what you wanted for your pets health insurance.

It is no secret that the procedure of using mammals in the genetic study is very normal and actually saying; it cannot be done without it. The uses of mammals other than human like goat, rabbit and mouse are a part of the genetic studies. Scientists are on regular searches to find out more details of the DNA or the genetic functionality in these animals to find out a suitable and a helpful treatment. It is done for human welfare, which is very obvious. The animals like a mouse, goat, or rabbit, however larger mammals could be beneficial to use simply because they supply a larger amount of serum. When a mammal is immunized in the procedure a Polyclonal Antibody is being made from them.
