I was a volunteer at a wildlife sanctuary for 3 weeks from November 4th until December 1st 2017. The sanctuary takes in orphaned or injured animals and looks after them with the aim for them to be released back into the wild. For some animals or birds release is not a practical option so they live out their lives at the sanctuary. There is a large range of animals and birds including lions, leopards, monkeys, antelope, crocodiles, sheep, meer-cats, eagles, owls and geese. The work is all directly or indirectly aimed at helping the animals, we did a lot of food preparation, enclosure cleaning and general improvements, but we also had trips offsite to look at camera traps or collect food/bedding for the animals. The sanctuary staff organized trips away for us as well, for example, we had three days in Victoria Falls.
