We are a french family with 2 daughters (Saskia and Marika) of 5 years and 1 months old.

I (Cédric) like animals and keeping them in good condition. We have different species in our zoological garden: birds (parrots, cranes, raptores, etc, reptiles, marmoset, wallabys, squirrels, coati, merkat, fish, 1 big dog, etc. That's about 200 animals that need our attention, that's a lot of work...
Otherwise i plays drums and like music. I'm now full working in our zoological garden.
We already have travel in many countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, America, etc.
3 years ago we travel during 1 year as backpackers and were volunteers in Costa Rica, Chile and Australia. A very nice adventure...
Now we come back to home and have new projects.
