I have just had my confirmation from Ulovane environmental training to say that I have been accepted on their field guide course. This means I can now train to become a field guide in South Africa.
I go on 8th October this year which is a long wait especially as i'm so excited. Good news is I don't have to wait to go to South Africa. Around the start of July I will be going to Blue Hill Escape to do some volunteering. Check out the website here (Link)
Also check out the Ulovane site here (Link).
In other news I am going to get my camera trap back next week so if anything has been snapped on its visit to South Africa it will be here next week.
