My Travel Story

by: Piper Sebrell Start Date: Jun 11, 2017 - End Date: Mar 10, 2018
Anybody who knows me knows that my passion is exotic animals. I had the opportunity last year to bottle feed and meet two baby tigers in rockwell, NC. I hope to one day work with animals like big cats, wolves, or bears. Since I was young I wanted to be a zoologist or zoo vet. Any money donated would be greatly apprecited as I am young and it's a hefty cost for me. I plan on attending college to be a veteranarian and then furthur extend my studies to be specifically a zoo vet. Doing this volunteer trip would be a huge step in learning the skills and what it takes to accomplish my dreams.

Next year, I hope to volunteer in South Africa with an amazing program called Volunteer South Africa. I would be doing the program called Living with Big Cats. Here is a breif description off the website of what it includes.

"It's deep in the very wild and beautiful African bush in the remote North West Province of South Africa. Volunteers work to better the lives of a number of big cats including lions, white lions, cheetahs, Bengal tigers, as well as other animals including elephants, giraffe, zebra, and wildebeest. The amazing staff at this sanctuary work closely with the volunteers to teach them about animal feeding, health, husbandry, and what it takes to run an animal reserve. As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to do loads of incredible activities including horseback safaris, elephant walks, and game drives. This truly is an extraordinary wildlife experience."
