I have a newfound love for wildebeest. I never really paid much attention to them on Safari but one day they had the zoomies and I felt like they were showing their personalities a bit. Meanwhile the baby giraffes were onlooking like "what the...?"
Now I watch them and appreciate them more. I did some more research and found that they can live up to 40 years old and migrate up to 1000 miles per year. If you want to find out more about these amazing creatures you can visit AWF.org where the focus is conservation. I wasn't aware that the wildebeest habitat is being threatened by fragmentation...(agriculture and economic growth).
ps. I secretly want to be an Animal Kingdom Safari truck driver.
pss. Safari animal class where we'll paint the wildebeest, gorilla, cheetah, rhino, and elephant begins Friday! Don't feel like you can draw/paint animals? neither did I. That is why I am teaching this class. I wanted a solution for a process that I enjoy and to make learning accessible.
