Story

Since I was 10 years old I have said to my mom “I want to be a vet and work with wildlife”! Luckily I had the opportunity to study and become what I wanted. Well, almost! I became a veterinary nurse and I have been working with small animals. In 2009 I had the amazing opportunity to do an internship at the Lisbon Zoo that changed my life! In this moment I confirmed what I already knew. Wildlife was my passion! My dream!

We protect wildlife for many reasons. It is integral to the balance of nature. By protecting species, we are helping to save this beautiful and irreplaceble planet we call home. Many wildlife species are under severe threat of extinction from poaching, damaging agricultural practices and climate change.

In order to follow my dream I have decided to go on a programme to South Africa where I will be volunteering and staying with Vets Go Wild. It’s a 16-day theoretical and practical programme focused on wildlife conservation. My mission is to contribute to a more sustainable future and play a key role in improving the precarious conditions of endangered animals. It’s not their fault that we humans decided to destroy our home!

So, why not help me help them? ;)
