Waheed Abu Mane’a

“These animals are my friends” The relationship between zookeepers (caretakers) and the animals intensifies as their companionship grows through time; Waheed Abu Mane’a has been working at the Giza Zoo for over thirty years, he summarizes this lifetime in a single sentence: “These animals are my friends.” The picture is for the Board Waheed has in the zoo where he collected all his pictures and memories in the zoo during the last 30 years.
