THE STORY:

Hey everyone! I am excited to announce that I will be enrolling in the South African Field Ecology course at UConn for the upcoming semester which means that next summer I will be spending three weeks on a game reserve in South Africa! Taking part in this program has been a dream of mine since I first learned of it my freshman year. Now, as a junior, I feel prepared for and excited about embarking on this once in a lifetime experience. During the summer portion of the course, I will be in the field learning about the ecology of native birds and mammals, animal behavior, track and sign, wilderness first aid, and so much more. It truly is my dream study abroad program. Unfortunately, it is a very expensive course that is not covered by financial aid. I could really use some help to gather the funds for the trip and therefore would greatly appreciate any donations, large or small, that you’d be willing to contribute. Thanks so much!
