The Wildlife Waystation attended the Conejo Valley Days Fair for the first time this past Mother’s Day weekend.  The first day, we took Tumbleweed, a Great Horned Owl, Shilo, a bobcat, Banana, a giant Burmese python, Tank, a desert tortoise and Al, an albino hedgehog!  We had lots of people stop and check out our critters, and allowed photo-ops with Banana and Tank, they were big hits with everyone, especially the kids!!!  

 

On Sunday, we took Rowdy, a Capuchin monkey, Basil, a goat, Fang, a ferret and Pebbles, an opossum.  All of the kids had a great time posing for pictures and feeding Basil, and Rowdy was a real crowd pleaser, he had a lot of people asking questions about him and many couldn’t stay away, they kept coming back to watch his antics!  Our volunteers did a wonderful job of talking to the people about how wild animals do not make good pets, and educating them about coexisting peacefully with them!  

 

A big thanks goes out to the Conejo Valley Days organizers for inviting us!

The Global March for Lions, held in 44 cities this past Saturday, was a roaring success!  In Los Angeles, almost 300 supporters, including over 20 Wildlife Waystation volunteers, participated in this monumental, worldwide march to ban canned hunting!

In a mock “funeral procession”, the LA march started at the Page Museum and the famous La Brea Tar Pits. Upon reaching the South African Consulate everyone participated in a solemn vigil on their front steps with the likeness of a lion on a stretcher. Then everyone marched back to the Page Museum and everyone took turns placing a flower over the lion in a very touching and emotional ceremony to honor all the lions who have been killed in these barbaric canned hunts.

   

Martine Colette, Founder & Director of the Wildlife Waystation, was one of the keynote speakers.  Ms. Colette spoke about the tragic slaughter of lions in canned hunting, and the plight of wild animals throughout the world.

Everyone CAN make a difference.  Even the smallest efforts can have a positive impact and banding together we can do even more!

Please start by signing the petition to the President of South Africa.
