South Africa Internship

As part of earing my Vet Tech degree, I am required to participate in a 4 week internship. I gave this a lot of thought, and I have decided to go the Cango Wildlife Ranch in Outshoorn South Africa! If you want to learn about Cango Wildlife Ranch just click on the name and it will take you to their website where you can see what kinds of animals they have there! This internship will give me a learning opportunity of a lifetime and will also help prepare me for my dream job working at the Ark Encounter, spreading God's word through his beautiful creations! At the ranch I will have the opportunity to work with a huge range of exotic animals such as cheetahs and tigers (as well as their cubs), lemurs, crocodiles,lynx, servals, otters, snakes, lizards, hippos, other primates, and so much more!
This is a picture of one of the volunteers at the ranch! Hopefully that will be me soon!

In order to go to the ranch, I will need about $4,000 which includes my plane tickets, hotel, housing, food, etc. Please help me raise the funds for this life-changing trip! Even if you can only donate a few dollars, that will add up!
Thank you and God Bless!
