Alumni of University of Essex matchfunded £825
I am hoping to raise around £2,000 for my project so that I am able to go to South Africa in the Spring to help out with an amazing wildlife conservation project called UmPhafa. It is an incredible opportunity where I will get to work closely with larger animals, and help increase the well-being of the fauna! :)
My name is Antonia and I'm a joint Law and Politics Undergraduate at the University of Essex. I spend most of my time studying and writing essays, but when I'm not I quite like sleeping or chilling with 'Campus Cat'/ and trying to convince my flatmates not to chase the birds out of our kitchen because they're the closest thing to pets students are allowed while living on campus.
My passion for animals and wildlife started when I was little and would ask (beg) my mum for a pet, so for everyone that was told "no!" to that question like I was, this is also for you! Help fund an amazing opportunity where I can help out with wildlife conservation (and pretend I have lots of wildlife pets!).
This project is different to any others like it because; not only is it good charitable work, it's also something fun and engaging for students of all backgrounds to participate in. Moreover it is a learning experience as South Africa is extremely different to life in London/Essex. It would be a great chance to experience life in a different culture with new adventures.
For the most part I will be collecting data to aid managerial decisions. This type of data will consider the well being of the animals, and to make sure that they are all happy and healthy. If any of the animals happen to be unhappy it will be our (the volunteering team) duty to make them feel better!What's in it for you?
More than anything this is just a worthy cause, years of pollution and treating our planet badly has meant having to have organisations like this in place to look after our planet, so this is just a way of giving back. Furthermore, I'm quite a good photographer and when you see the happy faces of the animals you have helped your heart will melt and you'll know that donating was more than worthwhile :).
