ZIVA
Our 10 year old daughter, Ziva, was born into this unusual environment and is proving to be a serious wildlife enthusiast in her own right. Ziva plays a massive role at the Funky Farm training, cleaning and caring for all of the animals. Of course she has her favourites and I would have to say Ziva and Cobar, one of Alpine Dingoes, have a very special bond together.
