Milan Goes to South Africa

I'm raising funds to support my research/internship in South Africa. This internship will be another step torward the lion behaviorist career that I want. I am so excited about all the adventures on this journey.

I will be going for 3 months this summer/fall and participating in several programs through Enkosini. A total of three conservation experiences include working with the Great White Shark Project, Makalali Game Reserve, and CARE Baboon Sanctuary.

-With the Great White Shark Project, I will be cage diving with Great White Sharks, helping with data collection for field research on Great White Sharks, and learning basic seamanship.

-The next month will be spent in part with Makalali Game Reserve, learning about elephant population influences, learning about predator/prey management in small reserves, and reserve maintenance. This time will be split with the Siyafunda Bush Experience and I will be living in the African bush for two weeks tracking animals, learning survival skills, and learning about biodiversity conservation (the practice of protecting and preserving all species).

-At the CARE Baboon Sanctuary, for the final month, I will be helping with animal sanctuary maintenance, learning about exotic animal care hands-on, and helping to raise the youngest of the baboons.

I am raising funds for this experience through scholarships, grants, and GoFundMe. The funds will cover travel and the cost of the experiences. Please click the Enkosini link above to read more about the experiences. And please, donate here at GoFundMe!

Please also check out my website, where I talk more about animal conservation, what I want to do, and what I love.

Thank you for your generosity and encouragement!
