I made a big decision today and decided to sign up for a volunteer project. I've been in contact with them for a while and I'm totally thrilled that I finally made this decision!
I've been to South Africa once before five years ago on an exchange and the thought of going back there never left my head since. To combine that with wildlife photography ánd doing something good is pretty awesome!
Now to get the funds together...
ps. for anyone who'd like to join me, I'm going in July ;)

I'll be in and around St. Lucia, taking photographs of the wildlife in the reserve there and at the same time educating local communities about the importances of conservation. The photo's are meant for educational books used in teaching as well by the way.
