COLLECT eggs, skin rhinos, feed lambs and train parrots – these are just some of the activities the Goofy Kids have on their YouTube channel.
Following in their father’s footsteps, Goofy Dinkelman, a South African wildlife activist and YouTuber, TJ (11), Maddy (9) and Josh (6) launched the Goofy Kids YouTube channel with new episodes released every Tuesday.
“They lead a life in nature that most children will never experience and they want to share it with others,” Dinkelman explained.
Since TJ, Maddy, and Josh are homeschooled, they have the freedom to help care for the animals that live on their farm in the Hillcrest area. With 300 to 400 animals on the farm, young people have plenty to take care of.

The farm is home to a range of creatures, including chickens, cows, pigs, goats, and sheep, as well as crocodiles, alligators, and more dental snakes.
As permanent members of the Dinkleman team, the Dingo Kids have contributed to a number of conservation projects. These include helping decorate orphaned rhinos at the Zululand Rhino orphanage to protect them from poachers; move wild lions, and the endangered brown hyena and pangolin; as well as the release of a number of native snake species into the wild.

“Animals are such an important part of our lives, and we want other kids to know how amazing they are. Even the ones people think are scary, ”TJ said.
Dingo Kids will be hosting a wildlife club in December and will be invited to join the team on their African bush adventures and interact with the animals. To find out more, follow Dingo Kids on Instagram or visit www.dingowild.com.
