Hi Everyone,

My name is Brenda and I am from Western Australia, I am 23 years of age and I have grown up on a farm with a love for animals, constantly saving and bringing animals that need my help into my care. My parents weren't always too pleased to see what I was to bring home next but they couldn't stop me from wanting to help.

My passion is animals and for so long I’ve tried to figure out the right career path for me and about 11 months ago I finally figured out what I could do to help and give back to the world. That choice was to study and learn what it takes to become a carer for animals that have been abandon, hurt or lost from the result of human-wildlife conflict.

Without having carers for these animals in need, we will have more animal species be put on the endangered list and eventually extinct, this can be prevented by educating people to be aware of this situation, kind donations and volunteer work from anyone that is willing to help prevent this from happening.

This volunteer trip will not only have an impact on my education and future career path but will also have a massive impact on the animals I am volunteering to help and care for. Without the funds of these volunteers going to help these organizations they are unable to raise the funds to purchase the necessity’s to care for these animals.

So please if you are interested and want to help apply for this volunteer work (volunteersa.com) or please make a donation to my fund travel page to raise more money to help these animals.

Thank you for taking the time to read my page.
