Home Blog Wildlife Parents Help


Dec 9, 2009
Hi everyone and welcome to the Sifaka World blog! I'm Kintana, Sifaka World's lemur host and I'm so excited about the new blog because now I'll be able to pop in and give you regular updates about what's happening in Sifaka World.

Some of you may have visited the Sifaka World Blog before and learned about the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) through posts by Leigh Whelpton who works at the CCF and has been keeping us all updated about the baby cheetahs and some of the other wildlife around her in Africa. If you haven't had the chance to read her posts don't worry! I'll be re-posting them and Leigh will continue to add regular updates.

I'm also happy to tell you that we're welcoming a new friend to the blog.

Chef Lisa Holmes, is both a real person and a Sifaka World character. In the real world, she is a professional chef who has been teaching children and families about cooking for several years now. Chef Holmes is also a writer who co-authored an award-winning book (Lunch Lessons, Harper Collins, 2005) about how we can get better lunches in public schools. It was her work on Lunch Lessons that led her to open The Children’s Culinary Academy in Falmouth, Massachusetts, where she created fun, unique, and exciting cooking classes for children of all ages. Click here to view her old blog and see her mini chefs at work. Chef Holmes will be posting recipes, cooking tips, and lots of fun cooking facts and information on a weekly basis. Feel free to leave questions for her in the comments section. She may even have a question or two for you in the near future. Look for some special holiday recipes in the next couple of weeks.

Chef Holmes’ Sifaka World character is a warm, fun-loving, Arctic Hare who is full of energy and has two children of her own. She and her long-eared sidekicks will be handing out holiday goodies somewhere in Sifaka World (up to you to find her!) near the end of December. After December she will be hosting cooking games and activities in her home in North America.

So that's it for now! Be sure to add us to your RSS feeds so you can stay in the loop. You can also follow us on Twitter and Facebook. Look at the bottom of the sidebar on the right for those links.

As the blog grows we’ll be adding more bloggers so stay tuned!
