I have been dreaming about coming to @careforwild for a really long time. CFW is on a mission to save rhinos from extinction and I was extremely proud and beyond excited to join them and @conservationace team for a month. I was volunteering, assisting with daily cleaning, feeding, and doing maintenance as well as documenting everything that happens here to raise awareness on rhino crisis and tell a wider audience about the amazing work that those organizations are doing here.
I always knew about the problem with illegal poaching and hunting but didn't really know much about the rhino crisis until I visited a game reserve in Cape Town in 2018. Just a day before my arrival poachers killed one of the rhinos. The incident was really fresh, so everyone was talking about it. Knowing that rhino herself, our guide was very emotional when talking about rhino numbers going down and why.
This is when I decided that I want to join @conservationace to learn more, help and raise awareness about it on my socials. @careforwild pays incredible attention to education here: documentaries, participation in discussions, listening to presentations, learning shocking information that gives you goosebumps. So my role here was to present that information to people and make them learn and act.
Together with a group of 7 volunteers, we spent a month in Durban, South Africa. For a month we were cleaning beaches and riverbanks in the area. Raising awareness on plastic pollution thought content creation. Building new facilities in a local Monkey sanctuary with ecobricks thought repurposing the plastic waste. As well as educating people in local townships how to turn their waste into building materials and be respect nature.

Together with Indonesian Tourism Board and ministry of forestry of Indonesia, I went to Borneo to see orangutans, learn about conservation and reforestation practices that the government is implementing there.
During this trip, I have visited 3 Anantara properties in Thailand and Cambodia to learn what the brand is doing to reduce their environmental footprint, educate local communities, and preserve local wildlife and species, as well as raising awareness on ethical and responsible animal tourism giving guidelines on how to interact with animals abroad.
