My name is Hiral and I am truly passionate about wildlife, conservation, travel and education people about the need to save animals and the beautiful environment we have. I have a master's degree in ecology, environment and conservation and throughout my degree I have realised the need for more people to understand the research that is being done to discover and understand wildlife. The patterns and information that we find is absolutely incredible and I personally have made it one of my missions to gather information from around the world and share it with people. My aim is to go to different education centres and conservation organisations around the world to understand what they do in their local communities and bring that information and their conservation success stories to South Africa and help the communities here, particularly the youth.
I work for an organisation called Wild Serve and our mission is environmental education and teaching the youth of today the important role they play in the ecosystem and how the world's wildlife need them to actively play a part in saving it to ensure a sustainable future.
Traveling to countries is costly and my request to you is for funding that can help me got to different countries such as Bangladesh and bring back their stories for South Africa. I want to make a difference in this country because it has so much to offer. Maybe this will spark some fascination in some of you wildlife enthusiasts and passionate individuals.
