There have been such exciting emails over the weekend. At 11.13pm we got the following:

"I am so excited that I can hardly contain myself .....

Attached are some pictures taken today. You will see our wonderful friend, MAF Pilot Garth Pederson standing with Michael Sthreshley as they loaded her on the van for the trip to the airport in Kinshasa. The others are pictures of her arrival at Kikongo and in Rita & Glen's house where Delphin and Sico will care for her.

There was also a note written by Glen and posted on FaceBook:

"A GOOD DAY FOR AFRICAN OTTER CONSERVATION:
Kamiya, an orphaned Congo Clawless Otter has successfully been moved to Kikongo. She is in the care of our experienced Congolese friends. Mazu has grown up and recently returned to her Wamba river swamp. Kamiya has now occupied Mazu's space at Kikongo. Logistics for the week long transition were a challenge, but the best part of the story is that Congolese are rising to the challenge of taking care of their own treasures !

I responded that the Kikongo Otter Center is now officially open. This is so totally thrilling ! I know you are all as happy as I am and I thank you for sharing this phenomenal experience together.

With warmest cheers!
Glen"
