Evening settles in at the Sanctuary as Tranquile spends the last moments of sun tiring out her little residents.Relaxing Sanctuary Day
Tranquile, Maurice, and Samuel enjoy a relaxing day with their Caterpillar friends. She can hardly wait until she has even more new arrivals!Day Swim
Tranquile takes her Caterpillar residents for a day swim, and they meet a new friend! Rosa the quadropus has volunteered to help on all swimming expeditions.Unexpected Surprise
Tranquile and her residents went for a relaxing walk, and found quite a surprise! New volunteers and residents! Please welcome the two new volunteers: Seriny the Grey Kitten and Damian the Green Unicorn; and three new residents: Charice the Green Dragonfly, Arla the Majestic Butterfly, and Serigi the Brown Rabbit.Starry Night
Tranquile, Samuel and Damian take some of their residents out for star gazing. Such a lovely night! Special Gift
Tranquile is jumping with immeasurable joy -- her residents banded together after hearing her story and built her a little tree house. She can hardly believe the love she has received for following her dreams. Forest Surprise
Seriny, Damian, and Tranquile were taking a break with a lovely stroll through the woods, when what do they find? A couple of exhausted little turtles! Tranquile thinks maybe they should bring the turtles home. Training
Poor little Turtles are so exhausted they knocked their tea over! Damian and Tranquile learn the turtles are training for a race! The Caterpillars overhear the story, and decide to start training themselves....though they don't really know how to train for a race...Maybe pull ups, weights, and balance exercises will do? Camp OutArt Class
The caterpillars show their creativity by making pictures of their favourite volunteers.
Can you figure out each of their favourites?Sanctuary VolunteersTranquile's Sanctuary
Tranquile invites you inside her ever-growing Sanctuary to meet her residents and volunteers! No need to worry, the building is still being worked on and everyone is very friendly.Introducing Damian
Introducing: Damian (m)
Who's there? Oh! Hello! Please, come in. I'm just finishing up my latest piece. I love creating clothing, fashion is a big passion of mine. Afraid I'm not all that good at sewing though, so my pieces usually stay on the page unless I can find someone to help bring them to life. Well yes, I suppose the piece is a little 'feminine', but what is 'feminine' really? Just a term we put on things that don't need them. I have no shame in appreciating these things, they are what I like and what makes me, me. That's what I excel at here, helping to show the residents and volunteers things aren't always as they appear. Maybe you could join us on our next outing? I plan on bring the residents to a village festival - lots of good music, fantastic food, and incredible art.Introducing: Seriny

Hey everybody!! The name is Seriny, I volunteer here at the Caterpillar Sanctuary. Ooooohhhh, did you see that light? What was that? Aww..it was just a glare from a passing vehicle. Where was I? Oh yeah, I was introducing myself! I work here at the Caterpillar Sanctuary, taking care of the more 'hyper' residents. Well, at least I get told they're hyper. I don't think so. Sometimes those caterpillars just aren't fast enough! Have you ever had to sit and wait for caterpillars to catch up while you're on a walk? It's sooooo boring! Though I guess a nature walk is supposed to be more walking than running...but I can't help myself! Something catches my eye and I just have to go! Ahh! Did you see that flower petal? Hold on while I go catch it!Introducing: Samuel

Oh, hello. Welcome to my little room in the Sanctuary. It is a bit small, but I don't mind, I usually just come here for naps. I spend so much time chasing after caterpillars, dragonflies, mice, and, erm, the many other animals we have here. *aaahhhhh* Sorry, still a bit sleepy. Had a late night helping the smaller caterpillars learn how to climb trees. Oh, you didn't know? Not every caterpillar can climb trees easily, some of them need lots of encouragement. Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to get a bit more sleep...Introducing: Rosa
Introducing: Rosa (f)
Rosa here, and I help the Sanctuary with their water excursions! I traveled here from across the seas, and was thinking of heading back home until I met Tranquile. I just loved her enthusiasm, teaching caterpillars to swim! I'd never seen such a thing before!
I spend a lot of down time floating around the local lakes, building sandcastles, and directing tourists when they're lost. Tranquile said she'll be adding a water room in the Volunteer Wing so I can spend more time helping out.Introducing: Maurice
Introducing: Maurice (m)
Salutations, visitor. Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Maurice, and I volunteer here at Tranquile's Caterpillar Sanctuary.
I met Tranquile while she was on an outing with her first group of residents, all blue caterpillars. I learned her story and decided I could spare some time volunteering with her establishment. How much I have learned and grown as my own person was quite unexpected!
Recently I moved in to the Volunteer Wing of the Sanctuary, so I could be of more help to Tranquile. When I have down time I thoroughly enjoy reading history and studying the arts. I plan to start hosting painting lessons for the residents soon.
