South Africa Research Trip


I spent 5 weeks in South Africa and Swaziland as a conservation research assistant gaining practical experience in ecology. This gave me the chance to learn more about future career paths, and to experience life in rural South Africa. It was a great experience to spend so much time so close to all of the animals.
