Intern testimonials

As a volunteer, one of my personal development goals was to exercise patience when disseminating knowledge. I was not patient with slow learners. However, I was able to overcome this when we took students to Ol pejeta conservancy. My duty was to explain to them the different types of animals, their adaptations to the environment and how they co-exist in the wild.

As a VSO volunteer from England, I was extremely nervous about working in a completely different country; however from my first day at the office, all of the staff made me feel very welcome and a part of the team. My main area of work whilst on this placement was with the Environmental Education and Eco Literacy programme. My time at Laikipia Wildlife Forum not only provided me with the chance to share my knowledge but the opportunity to learn and have multiple, wonderful new experiences that I will remember and incorporate into everything I do, now and in the future.
