I find everything hard in the heat. Slower going at tasks, more changing of sweaty masks and clothes, more checking in on humans and non-humans alike to make sure everybody is getting through the day. Even our meetings are hot. The banner photo above shows our new meeting location– the parking deck! Staying safe requires masks and being distant from each other. With no rooms large enough and available for the Team, we’re meeting in the parking deck.
I’ve seen cattle and alpaca standing in water and pools (and no, sadly, I do not have pictures to show you… you’ll just have to come by and see for yourself). Perhaps one of the few who like being outside is Duckie, one of our bearded dragons. Duckie need not wear a mask and is at home in really, really hot weather.
So much is still happening behind the scenes. Mandy and Hayden continue to do animal programs. Exhibits is building much needed new covered areas for the lemurs; veterinary care continues for the critters in need, and our amazing team of volunteers lifts us every day with their help and support.
Check out the photos to get a glimpse at what’s been going on.
