On August 4, 2018, I will be heading to South Africa for two weeks to volunteer through Volunteer Southern Africa's Living with Big Cats Program!
The program provides care and maintenance of many rescued & injured animals. At the sanctuary they have multiple species including elephants, lions, tigers, cheetas, hyenas, white lion and many more. As a volunteer I will be participating in the daily care of the animals as well as animal enrichment, animal enclosure maintenance and other farm maintenance.
Helping protect big cats and animals in general has always been a huge interest of mine, but I never imagined I would have the opportunity for an experience like this. Even though I will be volunteering, there are still costs associated to make the trip possible. My goal is to raise $4,000 to cover the necessary costs. Throughout the next 12 months I hope to spread awareness about the conservation efforts in South Africa to preserve such amazing wildlife while raising the necessary funds to make this trip a success.
Along with my fundraising page, I will be holding a few small events throughout the year in hopes to attain my goal. I will post updates here along the way. Thank you for supporting my Living with Big Cats Experience!
