It was a proud moment for me today to see the BSBCC’s first Keeper, David, give an induction to some new volunteers. He had always had more of a challenge with using English and I have tried my best to help him when I can. He is now so much more confident when using English, it’s quite impressive to see. Well done, David. Keep up the good work.

Oh yeah, and what makes me really proud of David is how good he is at his job. Working more in husbandry this week, I have seen that he has everything down to a tee; if everyone could manage their time as he does, we’d be much better off for it. David is a very competent keeper, a nice chap and a credit to the BSBCC.
I did some filming yesterday using the all-new “Keeper Cam” system. Being the original keeper here, David had the honour of wearing my contraption, a Go Pro HD Hero 2 camera with chest mount. The video was shot in order to obtain footage that can be used to induct future volunteers before they fly out from the UK. Footage on this occasion related to food preparation and feeding in the bear house.
