During the month of August I will be walking a total of 56 miles to raise money for Crocodiles of the World.
Coronavirus has meant zoos around the world are finding it very difficult as no one was able to visit them for such a long time. Despite lockdown being reduced the number of visitors now able to go is still not enough. This has made me sad.
I have been inspired by my cousin who completed a walk for a zoo that he enjoys visiting. This made me think that I'd also like to help make a difference too. During lockdown I also enjoyed walking and exploring the local countryside for my hour of exercise. While on these walks we'd see animals from snakes, birds, deer, hares, and butterflies.
So I have decided that I would like to help Crocodiles of the World to be able to continue to care for their animals.
Crocodiles of the World are a registered charity and are committed to conservation and promoting awareness of environmental issues affecting crocodiles.
I have visited Crocodiles of the World many times and really enjoy listening to the staff talk about all the animals. They have so many different species from the crocodiles, and alligators, to the lizards, turtles, otters, meerkats and the laughing kookaburras. There are so many mouths that need feeding.
The reason I will be walking 56 miles during the month of August is because my favourite animal at Crocodiles of the World are the 32 Nile Crocodiles. The Nile Crocodile can live for up to 56 years in captivity. That's a lot of looking after.
I will give you regular updates on my walks where I'll also tell you some interesting facts about the animals that Crocodiles of the World care for.
Thank you for taking the time to read my page and support me in my attempt to walk 56 miles.
