I am so excited to have an opportunity to go on a volunteer trip to South Africa!! This is a trip of a lifetime and would give me the experience I need fulfill my lifelong dream of attending LSU Vet School! On the trip I will get to experience the life of a vet in South Africa by treating animals in disadvantaged communities, working with a wide variety of farm species, and handling exotic wildlife! South Africa has one of the most diverse and exciting populations of wildlife in the world. Chintsa, is surrounded by a number of game reserves that frequently capture and release animals. I will get to work closely with the wildlife vets and their capture team to locate, immobilize, transport, and release wildlife, also known as “Game Capture”, and also work with wildlife through our rehabilitation program at the East London Zoo, and the reptile sanctuary.
