We waved our Animal Studies staff and students off on a trip of a life time for a two-week adventure to South Africa!

The staff and students got the chance to explore conservation areas all over South Africa, whilst seeing some of the world’s rarest and most exciting animals. The trip focused on a range of aspects such as management of game reserves, the use of tourism in conservation and wildlife rescue and rehabilitation. One of the highlights of the trip was the wild sightings. They were absolutely fantastic with all students seeing the big 5 which included the (leopard, lion, elephant, buffalo and rhino). There were also some other very special sightings including cheetahs, a hyena mother with two cubs and an African wild dog pack with a kill. The students also got the chance to visit a rehabilitation centre where they got close to some amazing species such as servals, caracals, cheetahs, vultures and eagles.

This is such a fantastic opportunity for our students, using the knowledge that they have learnt whilst studying at New College Stamford and putting it into real world situations! Undoubtedly, this experience will also prepare them for progressing into future work experiences at the end of their studies.

See below some of the awesome photos taken of the students showing just how amazing their trip was!
