I cannot begin to count the ways that completing the course has added value to my life.  I came to South Africa with no experience or knowledge of the bush except what I had learned from David Attenborough and other documentaries and books.  Despite this I knew it was something I was passionate about was determined to make the most of my experience.  I now spend every day assisting with the conservation and management of the reserve I work on. I am now research guiding for Limpopo Eco Operations and devote much of my time to monitoring the rhino population on the reserve which is a direct result of the qualifications I gained on the course.
