As a Zoology graduate and a current masters student in Wildlife Management, animals have always been my passion. It has long been my dream to swim with a whale shark - they really are such incredible animals. I am travelling to the Maldives in November and my wish and hope is to be able to swim with a whale shark. It is, however, incredibly expensive to do... This is why I have set up a funding account, in the hope that some kind people may help to make my dream become a reality. I would be incredibly grateful if the funds could be raised to allow me to go on a whale shark dive. I plan to video the experience and to share on social media to further the cause of saving our damaged seas and to show the world why it is so important to care for the environment. Thank you for reading my story, and I hope you feel you can contribute to my quest.
