    What a nice thing to do, adopting a rescued animal, isn't it!?!
    About Monkey World, here in the Netherlands we have a rescue centre for animals called 'Stichting AAP' (Foundation Monkey; website ).

    Years ago my wife Anne was able to adopt a bear in the 'Bear forest' in Ouwehand's Zoo parc. This adoption program was initiated by a Washing powder producer who had a cute little bear in its logo.

    In Attenborough's Elephant documentary a visit on an Elephant orphan centre. About five years ago I gave Anne an adoption of one of these orphans as a birthday present.
    On regular basis newsletters were send about how the center and the baby elephants were doing. Last year she received a letter that her 'special one' was big enough to let her leave the centre. So no financial contribution was needed anymore. It is really nice to see how keeper's of the center cooperate with these young ones on their way to a gave an independent life.

    So I hope you enjoy this documentary; the sad part, of course, excepted.

    Today we visited the Amersfoort Zoo. It is the favourite Zoo of my Grandchildren.
    What really impresses me in this Zoo is that a historic Egyptian city has been recreated and animal enclosures have been integrated into it.

    With the development of The Desert part of my Zoo I was inspired on this Ancient City.

    Are there more Zoos in the world that have an Ancient City in it?
