I am officially four weeks and two days away from Africa!
It really hasn’t even set in yet that i’m doing to be there so soon.
So for those of you who don’t know the details yet I will be traveling to Africa for 12 weeks with Africa Conservation Experience. This is my first blog post on here so I will break it down for you:
Care for Wild — 4 Weeks Nelspruit
At Care for Wild I will be doing just that; helping take care of injured or abandoned wildlife ranging from monkeys and honey badgers to baby rhinos and giraffes. This project is mainly infant care and rehabilitation.
Limpopo Wildlife Vets— 8 Weeks Mookgopong
On this project I will help with the capturing and relocating of different species of wildlife which is crucial for wildlife conservation and management. On this project I will have the rare opportunity to work with wild (and yes mom and dad: SEDATED) animals…….well most of them sedated anyways :). I am pretty excited for this project because I am really passionate about Rhino Conservation and having the opportunity to play a small role in that would be incredible. On this project we have a base camp where we live in large tents but on capture missions we stay wherever is convenient (or not convenient) so hopefully I will get good use out of my sleeping bag.
So there it is! My 12 weeks of Africa in a nutshell. I’m so excited to get there already and start working.
I will be sure to keep this blog updated as much as possible with pictures and stories. Thank you for your prayers, support and encouragement. And of course, thank you for reading my blog!
Soon to be in the wild,
