My Travel Story

by: Anastasia coe Start Date: Aug 11, 2018 - End Date: Aug 10, 2019
Travelling to Costa Rica has been a goal of mine for a long time, my fascination has always been around sloths and once I heard about the Sloth Santuary in Costa RicaI knew it was somewhere I needed to travel to.

This will help with my furture studies as once I become a Zoologist i aim to specialise in Sloths, by doing this volunteer work I am going to be able to gain a further understanding of the natural environment that Sloths live in before i even start my studying!

While I am there I am planning to give my help where ever possible. I plan to be the best team member I can be. I thrive in situations that place me under pressure and I become very determined when I set my mind on something. I am very passionate about this volunteer work as Sloths are my all time favourite animal and at the rate we are cutting trees down the Sloths are rapidly losing their homes. 

I chose this specific destination as I am able to witness Sloths in their natural environment instead of behind glass windows at a zoo. This is so meaningful to me as I am able to first hand experience how Sloths handle thmselves in the wild and how they have adapted to the wildlife around them. This trip has been a dream of mine for a while now, are you going to help me make it a reality?

  • First Half Term Finished

    Finished my first half a term. And I'm getting even more excited for when I finish my course. I've now got a special zoology book on the way, so I'll be able to properly look into the biological structure and able to understand how sloths interact with their environment. By participating in this volunteer scheme it allows me to get ahead of my education before I even go to university. Your contribution would mean a lot as you are helping me set out my future before university, would mean a lot even if you contribute the smallest amount.
  • College

    Now I've started college I am getting fully involved in all the fascinating parts of an animals, from their breeding to their behaviour and welfare.

    Being able to fully indulge in the in and outs of what makes a sloth so special had giving me an amazing insight to the things they have to go through. With the use of the behaviour aspect of my course I am able to fly over to Costa Rica and look out for all the signs that point to them either being anxious or being happy. I am able to look out for the good significant health and the bad signs and by also going to Costa Rica I am able to learn things I may not have had the time to learn in this course which then aids for my work in university.

    With the biology within the course I am able to understand the workings of the body and help to aid the other volunteers when health checking, my skills and abilities will be majorly beneficial within the sanctuary and with your help I can help in the sanctuary as much as I can.

    If you have donated thank you so very much and if you are reading this and are thinking about donating I would be so very very grateful and your money would be going to help make a lifelong dream come true :))
