Hope For Wildlife

Chosen from thousands of applicants, Hope For Wildlife in Nova Scotia chose me to be a Wildlife Rehabilitation Intern this upcoming summer!

Hi, My name is Merrin.

This is a dream of mine, stemming from opening a sanctuary (Milo's Mission) at a young age with my mom and my passion towards animals. 

Going into my fourth and final year in my undergraduate program in biochemistry, with aspirations to attend veterinary medical school after, and then to graduate into a vegan wildlife life to help the "Forgottens" - animals hit by cars, rescues, sanctuaries etc. Because I believe a doctor should never eat their patients! 

The nature of this internship pays in knowledge, meaning that during my 10 weeks, I will not have an income to sustain myself in Nova Scotia, nor will I be able to save towards my tuition for the upcoming year. 

Thank you for your time and your support, 

Check out Hope For Wildlife on TV, and join me through this incredible learning experience!
