Not long now!
West Bromwich, UK
After waiting for nearly a year it's almost time for me to leave! I fly out to Johannesburg in just over two weeks (and I'm so excited!).
It's been a lot of hard work (and a LOT of pints poured at work) to raise the money to pay for this trip, but I plan to make it all worth it.
I will be spending three months at Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre in South Africa. This centre is a refuge for ill, injured, poisoned and orphaned wildlife - they take care of them, nurse them to health and, where possible, release them back into the wild. Any animals that can't be released become permanent residents at the centre and are used to educate the public about South African wildlife.
They do fantastic work and rely heavily on donations and volunteers to keep the Rehab Centre up and running. I can't wait to be a part of it.
