Native people of the area use it to differentiate themselves from other tribes. Others use it as mosquito repellent, others say it’s also good for repelling unclean spirits, as a protection. We’re at an animal reserve and we’re looking to place volunteers to help rehabilitate this animals and get them back into the wild. Now we have ten different animal species. Many of the animals have injuries and have been used as mascots. It’s quite important these guys get back into the wild where they can defend themselves. If you love animals it’s a great place to work and get some experience…and do good.
