Telsha Arora, 26, England – November 2014

My stay at Lilongwe Wildlife Centre was 6 weeks long and during that time I experienced a variety of duties from helping keepers to feed the animals to hands-on orphan care of baby vervets which was incredible – and professionally I was able to assist the marketing team which was great charity experience for my career progression back in England. The fellow volunteers in the house were kind and welcoming and it really began to feel like home, it was very sad to leave but I’m glad I will be able to follow the progress and new arrivals of the animals on Facebook and Twitter.
