I started having fun with the others. Mathis loved tigers, but he wasn’t allowed to feed them, for safety reasons.
Flavie told us all about her job, she answered all our questions and had loads of stories… She knows the animals’ habits and has little nicknames for them. She’s like a real mum! As the day went on, it just confirmed that this is what I want to do in the future!
Then, it was time to clean out the coatis’ enclosure. It wasn’t my favourite bit, but it went quickly. Animals, like humans sleep better when their room is clean and tidy… If Mum could hear me saying that!
We gathered together, it was already 5:00pm… It just wasn’t fair, it went far too quickly! Flavie gave me a certificate! I’m going to stick it on my bedroom wall next to my poster of the red pandas… And I’ll keep my badge too! I’ll wear it to school on Monday, my friends will be so jealous!
In the car, I didn’t stop talking. There was so much to tell! We absolutely must come back in winter and do the ‘Junior Zookeper’ again, because the activities would be different. And I’d get to see Flavie again!
