Vet Odette Doest looks after an injured flamingo called Bob
The small island of Curaçao in the southern Caribbean is home to a flock of flamingos. One of them - Bob - was injured in an accident in 2016 and since then he has been living with veterinarian Odette Doest. Bob has also become an ambassador for Odette's NGO, Fundashon Dier en Onderwijs Cariben (FDOC), and helps her raise awareness about protecting the birds' habitat.
