Overseas Volunteer Experience Stories

As a media intern for Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary, I had the privilege to work alongside the staff in creating a "Day in the life of a volunteer" video (click the button below to view the video). Captivated by the passionate individuals who maintain the sanctuary, the aim of my project was to give a visual representation of the ethical and sustainable practices in place at Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary. Having the chance to also immerse myself as a volunteer meant that there were various opportunities to learn valuable skills. Gaining experience in animal husbandry allowed me to get a deeper understanding of the importance of animal welfare and rehabilitation. I hope to spread this message throughout my video and give a closer look at volunteer life for those also interested in helping a great and valuable cause.
