My Travel Story

by: Brianna Blok Start Date: Mar 5, 2018 - End Date: Dec 4, 2018
I’m 20 years old and it is my long life dream to focus on saving endangered species and any species in general. I have such a strong passion for wildlife and am spending this year while volunteering locally in Melbourne, Australia where I live. I want to BE the change and make a change in the status of our wildlife, there are detrimental impacts on an ecosystem if an animal becomes extinct and the balance falls tremendously leading to more species being threatened to extinction. It is my goal and my passion to make a difference and keep ecosystems in balance by saving species. I have chosen the following locations as each place has a particular species that I want to help save, for example, in my own country, Cairns in Queensland had a Bat Hospital, they get orphaned bats which means feeding every 3 hours by hand so they can survive, this is something I am aiming to do in September of this year. South America is home to many species I look forward to working with and saving, it breaks my heart the endangered status of some animals there and it is my goal to help in anyway I can. I currently study Veterinary and Wildlife Science and have knowledge on how to rehabilitate animals through Wildlife Victoria and my own experiences. I work for Zoos Victoria at Healesville Sanctuary and in my spare time I volunteer at animal parks and research projects. I’m currently working out most endangered species the Eastern Barred Bandicoots these nocturnal animals are very small and docile, they don’t have many defence mechanisms therefore are declining in population significantly, thanks to Zoos breeding programmes and protection of nature parks we have been able to incline their population in conservation parks where we can monitor them and they can still live in their natural habitat in a protected area.
It is my goal to save $10,000 AUD to continue this kind of research and breeding programmes on endangered species around the world and it would mean the world to me and in the end our wildlife if you could help me reach my goal!
