My name is Bethany. I am a year 10 student from St Clements High in Norfolk.
Borneo expeditions offer me the unique chance to live and work as part of the community, helping local people improve their living standards in a sustainable way and support various conservation efforts to safeguard the future of some of the world’s rarest and most impressive wildlife, I will be given a fantastic opportunity to visit the world-renowned Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary where i'll see orphaned and injured orangutans before they are released back into the wild. i will being taking a impressive commute to life-changing project work as I jump on board a boat and set off down the Kinabatangan River, spotting wildlife along the banks. I will embark on a 4-5 day trek through the jungle, surrounded by exotic wildlife. Sleep in a hammock beneath a jungle canopy and gain a new perspective on life as I visit poignant memorials to World War II soldiers. I'll also have the chance to learn essential jungle first aid and survival techniques whilst mastering fascinating traditional skills.
This fantastic opportuntity also will be giving me UCAS points towards a degree in my future career.
