Why take a gap year ?

“Nine lions were to be transported to Mozambique to restock an area depleted in wildlife. This involved darting them, taking blood samples and checking them for TB. This was carried out by a wildlife vet as we witnessed the whole event. On another occasion one of the researchers needed to collar a leopard. I got to drive the research truck through the reserve, sleep out in the bush on the back of the open truck and witness a spotted hyena darted and released. Fantastic!'

Chris was on a conservation project with African Conservation Experience.
