Wild At Heart - San Diego Safari Park

 San Diego Club Member Andrea Cabibi is a manager of the Avian Section at San Diego Safari Park and graciously gave me and David and Edith Benites a back scene tour of the bird facilities and tour inside the exhibits of the other animals.

 Many of the park animals are from Africa because the weather conditions are most similar. Most animals at the park are endangered species and ova and sperm are stored frozen.

 Great Hornbill
Andrea explained the fascinating process of artificial insemination in birds which she with a helper do.

 After the bird facility tour, we climbed in the four wheeler and rode up and down inside the animal exhibits.

The giraffe came right up to the vehicle and took carrots from our hands!
