Our sponsorship programme supports our long term residents who will live out the rest of their days in luxury here at Proteus. Sponsorship supports their food, lighting and enrichment and is vital to their continued care. 

Thai - Savannah Monitor 

Long term resident due to old age and associated health complications 

Thai is our resident Bosc Monitor and has been with us over 5 years. He came to the centre after being found wandering The New Forest. He is a favourite with all of the team due to his big personality - he loves people but loves his food even more! Unfortunately age seems to have caught up with him recently - he's a rather old boy now. He has started to slow down in recent times, his eyesight is deteriorating so struggled to find food without assistance. 

Sponsoring Thai would help pay for vet bills for a thorough health check, an assessment on his eyes as well as general maintenance of his day to day care. He is a sweet boy who loves to come  out and have lots of love and attention from all of us here at Proteus. He may be an old but he is a big baby at heart!
