    hello everyone ! its been awhile but this gap was for the best --- I was volunteering in Namibia AFRICA on a wildlife sanctuary called Naankuse :)
    I had the most...amazing time. Every second just reminded me im meant to be working with wildlife and animals in general. I've learned so many things in Namibia between species, conservation, tracking , ID ect and I thought i'd share a few photos with you

    NOTE: ALL OF NAANKUSES ANIMALS ARE RESCUSE AND IF POSSIBLE FOR THE ANIMAL THEY ARE RELEASED BACK INTO THE WILD

    first of all, beauty and the beast aka me dining with a warthog

    Getting ready for bed ( you sleep with the baby baboons as the nights to cold for them as all the baby baboons are orphan rescues )

    Nice to have you back!:) Wow, looks like you had an absolutely amazing time! What exactly was your purpose being there? Like, what did you volunteer for and why?

    And amazing photos!

    Looks like we've had yet another ZooChatter traveling this year, the fifth by my count! And the third to have been to Africa this year!

    some very nice photos there. I especially like the one of the snarling leopard! Seems like you had a fulfilling trip.
