My experience in South Africa was a once in a lifetime experience. I was able to see first hand wildlife in its natural environment. I learned about a variety of species, from small to big mammals and insects. The overall internship is a great opportunity to discover the importance of conservation in SA and the impact these creatures have on the planet. The internship gave me an understanding of the animals in SA, their behavior, the importance of protecting the species, prey/predator relationship, rhino dehorning, tracking, bird watching, as well as the out reach programs around the local community. The staff at GVI SA had a wealth of knowledge and their willingness to teach and the effort that they made to make each day full of adventure and a wonderful time.
How can this program be improved?
The program can improve if they gave the Intern manager some room to implement more tasks and activities for the interns.
Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would
