My volunteering experience was amazing. I learned and experienced so much while there and was even part of a lioness darting and re-collaring. My group was also the first ever to witness the three one-month-old Cheetah cubs belonging to a mother who’s GPS collar unfortunately no longer works. It was an unforgettable experience, and I hope to volunteer with the organisation again in the future! Just being able to be a part of something that’s actually conserving endangered species. What’s rewarding is spending a long rainy day tracking an animal and finally finding it and seeing that it is okay. Getting up so early in the morning is a challenge, but it’s worth it! For me personally, Wildlife ACT stood out among all the other volunteering organisations!
