We hear about them, we watch movies about them, and we go to amusement parks to see them.... but how are we helping them?? I had planned my winter around traveling, until Blackfish. That documentary helped me realize that while we talk about how much we love these creatures, we do not do enough to help them survive in a world where a portion of us are hunting them or using them for our own entertainment...and so began my goal to help in whatever way I can. I want to volunteer in South Africa to start... a program that seemed as hands on as it can get in terms of helping out- helping nurse penguins back to health, go and study the dwindling number of great white sharks left to find a way to enhance their breeding so they do not go extinct, and help spread the word through education of whales and dolphins and how much they need to be in their natural environments, rather than swimming in pools... where they are not living for themselves, but for our pleasure; breaks my heart. I want to volunteer to help the animals I grew up loving, and I need your help to do that. The organization I applied for has accepted me this December, but in order to go I need to be able to afford the trip over there. The money that you donate to me, will go to the organization which uses money for the causes i am fighting for! They will give me a place to stay and some food during my time volunteering for them. Please help me... help them. I want to say I helped make a difference, rather than let such an opportunity pass me by. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and for any assistance you can give me in getting there. All extra funding beyond my target will be donated to the organizations fighting to help save our Ocean's endangered and vulnerable animals.
(The organization I am going through is the Enkosini Organization. My focus will be the Enkosini Eco Experience. I will do as much as I am able to through your funding! I am working 7 days a week right now to help get myself there... please help me reach my goal! Thank you.)
