Lessons from Natures Classroom and baby Meerkat care...

Dq

I spent a very long hot day in the Kalahari in the 1990's with this babysitter female, who went without any food or water for the entire day caring for this baby.

This was not her own baby, she was helping care for the the dominant females baby. The mother had gone foraging many kilometres in the groups danagerous territory to find enough food so that she could produce milk and lactate for her baby when she returned to the sleeping burrow at the end of a long day.

Temperatures would often exceed 45 degrees Centigrade in the shade in the summer in the Kalahari.

Without the help of the group, Meerkats would not be able to survive the harsh environments they inhabit. People can learn many valuable lessons from Natures Classroom if we take the time to study it.

Family and friends are precious and by helping each other when we can, we all benefit...
