I decided to volunteer with Legodimo Wilderness because I am interested in environmental issues and conservation. Until my time in Botswana, most of my environmental volunteer work had been done in Canada in the form of policy development and pro bono legal work. This was the first time (other than some tree planting) that I was able to engage in hands-on conservation work, which was a great treat. Further, I wanted to be able to spend time in Africa, engaging with wildlife and seeing how conservation is run abroad, without simply booking a safari.
When I looked into Legodimo, it was clear that I would be able to get this kind of experience.
