January 7, 2011

The children we met on our first day accompanied us in two large safari trucks to Arusha National Park, where we collaborated in teams to identify the most species of wildlife. The art students experimented with photography techniques while the wildlife group learned about diagnostic features of several species. The highlight of the day was seeing giraffes, greater and lesser flamingoes, Harvey’s duiker, olive baboons, and common warthogs. The day ended with the children receiving binoculars donated by a former UD student to continue their interest in wildlife, and everyone parted with fond memories!

P.S. Ja-Z and Katie missed blogging yesterday, look for another one soon though!
