WELCOME TO MY TRAVEL BLOG!
To my readers,
I travel to educate myself so I can give animals the voice they deserve.
I’ve always had a passion for animals. I grew up surrounded by pets and I knew animals would play a huge part in my future. At the age of 16 I decided to focus my education exclusively on animals.
At the same time, I was offered the opportunity to travel to Tanzania for 4 weeks without family and friends. I knew it would be challenging, but I underestimated how hard it would be. I found it really helpful to write my experiences in a journal.
Following that trip, I didn’t think I would travel again. But I discovered a greyhound rescue centre in rural Spain recruiting volunteers, and I needed to help. It was also a tough trip but seeing the impact I had on the dogs I was looking after made it worthwhile.
During the summer of 2019, I spent an incredible 6 weeks volunteering in the South African bush, working with many of the Big 5 animals. It was here that I found my love of conservation which became the primary direction of my education.
I wanted to share my experiences with others so, using the entries from all my journals, I created Airborne for Animals, a travel blog focused on the welfare of animals.
I’m now at Plymouth University studying animal behaviour and welfare and taking every opportunity to travel and volunteer. I have several overseas projects organised next year, including studying wild black bears in North America and orangutans in Indonesia.
Combining my passion for animals and travel, I want to share my knowledge and experiences to educate and inspire others. We all need to play a role in ensuring the survival of animals across the globe who are unable to speak for themselves.
When I am not travelling, I shall be posting top tips, such as travelling with anxiety or planning your trip; dos and don’ts like how to avoid animal exploitation, and many other things that you should all find useful such as information about Animal Cruelty Awareness Week and Christmas Markets Around the World!
If there is anything in particular that you would like to see then don’t hesitate to get in contact and I will be happy to oblige!
