Simon is pursing an exciting career working with animals and is currently studying at Sparsholt College in Winchester.
As part of his course he is taking part in an educational trip to South Africa in May 2016 where he will be working alongside vets and rangers in Kruger Park and Maholoholo, gaining valuable experience working with animals in the wild, in safari parks and as part of inspiring conservation projects.
During his time in South Africa Simon will be participating in various activities such as visiting the Khami Reptile Centre and attending a Dangerous Wild Animals handling course, visiting a cheetah breeding centre as well as learning how to track animals and look out for their welfare.
He’s spent the past two years saving for the trip. The JTYAF is pleased to sponsor his vaccinations ahead of the trip.
Good luck Simon, we hope it all goes well and can’t wait to see some photos!
