Position:

Intern

Qualifications:

Nature site guide level 2
First aid level 1

I grew up on and around the bushveld and have always had a passion for animals as well as nature. Conservation has always been a passion, being able to protect and look after creatures that cannot protect themselves. I assisted at a Rhino rehabilitation center which gave me more of an understanding for endangered species and how we can assist in protecting them, as well as the dangers these species face.

“if you had the ability and opportunity to help in any way that you could, wouldn’t you?”

I chose the MHGP because I was given an opportunity to do something bigger than myself, along the way I hope to gain life skills that will assist me in the future.
