Jessica's Conservation Trip To New Zealand
Organized by: Jessica Mintz
I am a wildlife conservation major at the University of Georgia and I am hoping to go this upcoming summer to New Zealand to help preserve their environment, plant trees and help protect their national bird, the endangered Kiwi bird. I've been accepted into International Student Volunteers program and need to raise $6000( trip fees, domestic flights in New Zealand, food, accommodation, and most of the international flight). I've always been passionate about animals and the outdoors, that's why I'm a wildlife studies major, and I've always wanted to do a volunteer program so I could travel to another country and get a jump start on what I love. New Zealand is a beautiful country with amazing ecosystems that need to be preserved, if you don't believe me then watch Lord of The Rings because most scenes were shot in New Zealand, and I want to do what ever I can to be apart of something like this. Unfortunately, I am a college student and money is really tight so I'm trying to fund raise the money to help me get there!
