Almost finished my first assignment

Post by Eleanor on Sat Sep 27, 2014 11:01 am

dance dance dance dance bounce

Taking a quick break to sort out my rumbling tummy. tongue I've really enjoyed doing all of the research and sourcing. We have access to all of these amazing journals and I've learned a huge amount, just by sifting through for information!

Yippee! happy

I also love wolves. It's one of my biggest wishes to hear a Timber wolf howl to the moon, in the wild.

Oh, I'd love to hear them howling! They're one of the most beautiful animals on the planet and I love everything about them. love

On a slightly different, but slightly related note: I've also wanted to go to Kruger National Park for aaaages. I thought I'd finally be able to go next year as part of my course, but I can't afford it. broken heart broken heart broken heart crying I was so disappointed when I saw the price a couple of days ago. It's £2200, which is probably a decent price, but still... sad

Very interesting assignment! happy It's all submitted and done now!

Kruger is fabulous but not the same as it was.
What do you need to do for your course?

It sounds amazing love

We do anatomy, physiology, behaviour, welfare, field ecology, health and disease, genetics, breed development, large animal husbandry, small animal husbandry, as well as sciences (Biology and Chemistry). It's a science-based course, so that makes quite a strong appearance in all of the subjects. There's also a considerable amount of required work experience in the animal industry, which needs to be completed independently in order to gain the qualification.

Like I said - Kruger is not what it was. It's so commercial and badly run. It's all about the money now. I don't know how good an educational experience you'll get there.
I do think the Garden Route Game Lodge, that's near me, has a program. I know they have volunteers working there.
If you want to check it out, you would be welcome to stay with me. That should cut some cost.

Only a small part of the trip is spent in Kruger NP - most of it is spent taking part in stuff that would really be beneficial to my course. sad There's also the problem of timing - outside of the slot allocated for the trip, I barely have any time off to go at any other time. It's really lovely of you to offer, though hug I really do appreciate it!

If you do decide to go I'll give you a whole extra lesson on South Africa and how they prey on the innocent 'Foreigners' laughing
