Arriving at a remote wildlife sanctuary in a country so far away from my own was certainly daunting in the beginning; the people were new, the food different and the working hours long. Yet over the course of a month, I established a rhythm. Adapting to the change in environment, my days became easier. I began to feel fulfilled by the work as the connection I cultivated with the centre deepened. Making improvements to the place that provided for me, whilst looking after the animals, I found to be deeply satisfying. Close friendships with the people around me were also developed, adding a welcome pillar of support. Undertaking an experience such as this definitely shouldn't be underestimated, but the rewards to be had are many. This has undoubtedly been a life-changing event that will continue to shape me throughout the future.
