Testimony of Tina for the Wildlife Monitoring Mission, South Africa

Mission of 0 days done in August 2018

My participation

My experiences with this project have been absolutely amazing and unforgettable - experiences that will stay with me forever. It was a childhood dream to be able to visit Africa and see the wildlife in its natural home, specifically elephants. Each time I visit South Africa, I leave a little piece of my heart behind. I can not wait to return for my next experience with this project; I would go back tomorrow if I could!

With each project you get to be part of real conservation, learning from amazingly dedicated and knowledgeable wildlife monitors, being part of a small team of international volunteers who are quickly getting to know the wildlife. There is nothing like having an African elephant walk directly on the road towards you, seeing a lion's nest, and spotting an African Wild Dog pack. These are experiences that most people will never have.

Though you can not find the animals you are looking for, there is no shortage of things to see. There is amazing bird life, plants and trees, all around the reserves. You will quickly learn the difference between a nyala and an impala! There are a lot of opportunities in the world, and just being in South Africa and taking care of the natural surroundings is enough.

While not all of the work is easy or pretty, you know what you are doing is actually making a difference to the conservation and future of these animals and the reserves.
