Flamingo Bob enjoys a lovely summer evening at a private beach in Curaçao. Now that all schools are closed for the summer, his educational duty is reduced to a minimum and he spends most of his time hanging out with his flamingo friends @fdoccuracao
. As Odette still feels he belongs out in the open, she regularly takes him to the beach for a swim, which also serves as aqua therapy for his arthritic feet.⠀ ⠀ MEET BOB...⠀ ⠀ Bob is a Caribbean flamingo, from the island of Curaçao. His life took a dramatic turn when he flew into a hotel window, leaving him severely concussed. He was cared for by my cousin, Odette Doest @vetdoest
, a local vet who also runs a wildlife rehabilitation centre and conservation charity – the Fundashon Dier en Onderwijs Cariben (FDOC) @fdoccuracao
. Existing disabilities meant Bob couldn’t be released, but instead he became ambassador for FDOC, which educates locals about the importance of protecting the island’s wildlife.
