Jungle Cat World in Orono, Ontario is a zoo dedicated to the care and preservation of jungle cats and other exotic animals. Opened in 1985, the zoo was founded by Wolfram and Christa Klose, a couple who adopted a male lion cub named Pasha four years earlier and have been obsessed with jungle cats ever since.
The zoo offers many interesting programs, including a unique Night Safarithat allows guests to explore the zoo at night when the animals are most active! The evening begins with a Wildlife Presentation in the Education Centre of the zoo, where guests will get up close and personal with a variety of amazing animals like tigers, servals, tarantulas and snakes. Afterwards, a safari guide will walk participants through the zoo at night, where they can observe giant jungle cats like leopards and jaguars leap around and feast on their dinners. The night ends with a large campfire, roasted marshmellows and the natural sounds of the zoo.
The fee for the Night Safari is only $50 per person, and it includes the wildlife presentation, zoo tour, bunkhouse lodging, dinner, snacks and free admission to the park the following day. A minimum of 20 people are required and a $200 deposit will be required to secure booking.
It will be tested on over 60 buses throughout the coming months. Residents taking the 35 Jane route will be able to access free Wi-Fi starting at the end of May, while the 102 Markham Rd. route will launch the pilot in early June.
The buses will reportedly be "specially marked" to help commuters identify which ones offer internet services.
In a tweet, Toronto revealed that all of its city clinics are either "fully booked" or "close to" fully booked from today until June 2021 — a reality that Mayor John Tory says is solely down to supply.
"We have considerable additional capacity to allow us to do more in our city-operated clinics," Tory said at a media briefing on Wednesday, "if we had further increased supply of vaccine."
The city did add more than 63,500 appointments for its own vaccine clinics on Thursday, in part due to expanded eligibility in Ontario, but the majority of the new appointments will only be available between June 7 and 13.
While there is no set date on when students will be returning to in-person learning, Yaffe reassures that schools will be the first thing to open.
"Keeping in mind that schools would be the first to open among all the things because that is the most important aspect," Yaffe stated when talking about a reopening, "I can't tell you exactly when, but we want to be careful. We don't want to open too soon and close immediately after."
