It has been a couple of years since I last used this blog properly but I am back in action! I have started a new job with Born Free in Ethiopia. I am the Wildlife Care Manager and as such am in charge of the welfare of the animals held at the sanctuary, including prepping them for potential release. I also aid in the rescue of wildlife in need which can vary wildlife from an African lion to a tortoise. I am working with lions, cheetah, hyena, a variety of primates, antelope and birds of prey. The site is based in Holeta just outside of Addis Ababa and also acts as a wildlife refuge to native wildlife living in the area such as leopard, a healthy population or hyena, warthog and abundant array of birds.
