Hello there! Firstly, thank you for taking the time to read this. I am a serving member in the Canadian military and am currently finishing school to become an officer. I have endured some hardships during my time in besides the typical hardships faced when in the military and these circumstances have caused me to really question what I want out of my life. The one thing I know for sure is how much animals mean to me and the magic that they can be for people struggling with mental health issues. I am hoping to go to Costa Rico with The Bamboo project to volunteer as a part of the turtle conservation project. My animals here in Canada have helped me an overwhelming amount and the opportunity to give back through volunteering in Costa Rica to help turtles would be absolutely amazing. I need to get away from the bustle of Canadian life and clear my mind by getting back to the simple things and doing some good.
