I will be spending three weeks in South Africa on a Vets in the Wild Expedition. A majority of the time will be spent in national parks and conservation centers. The reason why I picked this expedition specifically is because we will be visiting an African lion conservation. Lions are my passion and I want to do everything in my power to protect them and educate communities on how to coexist with lions again by teaching them ways to protect their villages and livestock instead of resorting to hunting lions. This trip will further educate me on what I can do to really make a difference, while feeing my passion. I would like to also help lions in captivity. Making sure that they are getting proper treatment and are not being exploited. I'd really appreciate any help for the cost of my flight and the program.
