Care for Animals at Colombo Zoo in Sri Lanka, Volunteering
         

Carina did a whole series of different projects with Travellers in Sri Lanka

Another memorable time for us was when we worked at the zoo. It was so much fun. We got to clean out the Leopards and Tigers, we got to wash the Lions as well – that was fun!

The best part of the day was the time we spent with Tony (a three-year-old chimpanzee). We were in his enclosure for over an hour, he has SO much energy and is so clumsy, he is just so much fun to be around, we could have stayed in there all day. We took him for a walk around the zoo on his tricycle, we drew quite a following!

It was just so amazing to be up close with these animals, not many organisations let you do that these days. So for that, I am eternally grateful. Now back at my desk and back into the same old routine that I once left behind, I cannot wait to go back out there – it has certainly left me hungry for more.

Like I said before, I would recommend this adventure to anyone. I owe a lot to Travellers, as the knowledge that I gained cannot be brought, only experienced.
