There has been a brilliant competition running lately to find the New Voice of Conservation.
The lucky winner would win the chance to spend a 1 to 3 month all expenses paid stint living and working with animals at the Shamwari Game Reserve this summer.
As the Voice of Conservation it will be their job to spread the word about the conservation issues facing the animals they will be working with, from rhino poaching to big cat rehabilitation, and of course as well as sharing all their amazing adventures with us.
To win the applicants needed to show they were passionate about wildlife conservation and animal rehabilitation, and, as the Voice Of Conservation will be talking, chatting and making friends online to spread the issues that are important to them, they needed to prove that they are a natural when it comes to social media, blogging, online networking, video creation and so much more.
After all, if you’re going to tell the animals’ stories, you need to know how to talk to the world!
Finally after many weeks I am pleased to announce the new Voice of Conservation – Katherine Alex! She will be arriving in July and I will be posting various entries about her adventures in Shamwari and about the issues she is talking about with the world – so watch out and follow her story!
