My Travel Story

I am currently studying Marine and Freshwater Conservation at the University of Cumbria. Volunteering in Madagascar will give me the opportunity to get more experience within this field and help the environment at the same time.

Increasing levels of anthropogenic disturbances, such as deforestation has led to the decrease in quality of the environment. The oceans are also being affected which issues such as litter pollution and ocean acidification.

Volunteering in Madagascar will make a positive difference within the local community, access to education gives children and adults a sense of confidence, as well as expanding their knowledge and improving skills in other activities such as sports, music and science. 

I chose Madagascar to experience a change from my day to day life, such as living without running water and electricty and living off rice and beans. I look forwards to helping local people and helping to conserve the forest and oceans.
