My Travel Story

by: Emily Gerke Start Date: Jun 18, 2017 - End Date: May 3, 2018
Hi everyone!  Anyone who knows me knows my love for animals.  I am especially fond of my cats. I came upon this volunteer opportunity and instantly knew I had to go.  This program will give me a chance to work close up with many animals such as lions, cheetahs, elephants, zebras and many more!  The awesome thing is that these animals are happy and free and not enclosed in tight spaces being gawked at.  Along with spending time with the animals I will also take part in service projects such as weeding the facility, caring for and rehabilitating sick and injured animals, helping with the fencing project so as to provide more grazing for the animals and many other things to make sure the farm is well kept.  In addition, I will be going into my junior year of college and I am interested in perusing a career in the animal field.  All the reviews are positive and everyone says it was the best experience of their life.  Please help me make this amazing trip possible.  Every dollar counts!

Thank you,
