Review

This experience was a dream come true, and just the first day was worth every penny I spent. Throughout the two weeks, we worked on animals like elephants, rhinos, giraffes, buffalo, hartebeest, roan, and lions. Before each hands-on experience, we were given a lecture on the specific type of animal, what types of medications to use, and how to keep ourselves safe. We were also given the opportunity to go behind-the-scenes at an aquarium in Port Elizabeth. There we learned about various marine creatures, and we did a necropsy on a whale that washed up to shore. Not only did I learn how to sedate and treat these animals, but I learned about the huge conservation role each of them plays. I also learned how important our role is. This experience changed my life, and it made me realize that we can truly make a difference.
