This week was amazing because I learnt about Ethiopian culture and the kids were very well-behaved. We went together practice a traditional dance with the shoulders which was very funny. And I also enjoyed playing football with the kids!

Hard work pays off, and this doesn’t go unnoticed by the amazing crew. I managed to go onto an exclusive boat trip which had less clients on board, giving me more opportunities to capture some great footage of the sharks who displayed incredible activity, breaching around six times in the space of two hours.

The African Wildlife Orphanage’s main goal is to care for orphaned or injured animals until they are able to be released back into the wild. If that’s not a viable option, they’re lovingly cared for the rest of their lives. These animals are also used for educating young local children about the creatures that share their environment. Bulawayo is the second largest city in Zimbabwe, so many of the children living there have never had the opportunity to see or touch wild animals.

I have been here on the Perhentian Islands for about one month and I’m still excited for the beautiful landscape, the warm people and of course the amazing turtles we are working with daily. On the 10th my teammate Joel,  Kinsey and Elliot and me saw the first turtle nesting at Tiga Ruang during our night patrol. It was so amazing seeing the turtle laying her eggs in the sand, measuring her carapace and taking photos of her for photo identification!

If there’s one thing that we all have in common, it’s that we are all human. We may come in different shapes and sizes, speak a variety of languages and follow traditions that are unique to our communities, but the being human part is what binds us all. Unfortunately, not everyone in the world is lucky enough to have access to what most of us would call the ‘basics for survival’, including clean water, nutritious food, shelter, healthcare and education. Having said that, what we do have is the opportunity to share our luck and join in the efforts of supporting the underprivileged by going on a humanitarian aid trip abroad.
