This is Jade. Jade of Joy was born Feb. 10th making Dolly the mama of 2 goats.
The zoo is about the size of a nice petting zoo in the states, but it is the only zoo I know of in Haiti. Dolly was gifted 2 animals for the zoo last year for her birthday but with changes in staff and issues with space, she has yet to receive them although the sender waits patiently. We have not given up hope and are dreaming on the best way to make accommodations in the zoo for these new animals.
My camera lovin' friend Jen captured this mama and her chicks.
Yes, this critter is in our zoo. NO, I did not take this beautiful photo.
As Dolly's birthday rolls around, we thought this would be a great time to share of her desire to see the zoo remodeled for its 50th Birthday!
