VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

This month is centered around being thankful for who and what we have.

Wild Adventures is taking time out to be thankful for all of the animal families it caters to.

It is all a part of their month-long 'Days of Thanks' celebration.

On Tuesday, the Wallabies, capybaras, alpacas and rheas were celebrated.

Many of the animals at Wild Adventures are endangered species. 

Stephanie Barden, who is the zoo-keeper at Wild Adventures stated that the reward of working with the animals is beyond measure.

 "On a day to day basis, it's a lot of fun. We get a lot of chances to experience a lot of different things with a lot of our animals here and it's really, really great to watch an animal grow to trust you," said Barden.

Next week, November 24th-26th Wild Adventures will offer admission for teachers, first responders and military, as well as BOGO admission with food donations to Second Harvest of South Georgia.
