Take a look at the url below if you're interested. I'm (sort of) blogging in pictures, my grand-daughter Jade's journey through her life in Australia

Images, generally of low resolution and many taken with a phone, of Jade's new life in Australia. Jade works at Australia Zoo and in her spare time pursues her passion for wildlife, in particular raptors and conservation, by visiting, or volunteering at, other wildlife sanctuaries, including those in Europe, in order to increase her knowledge base. There are the odd couple of pics that aren't of birds but the primary focus is on her work with birds

So grateful for her, and others like her, who have a heart for wildlife and their preservation.

That's a nice variety of images on Flickr, too. It looks likes she's found a dream job!

Thanks

She's a very lucky girl with a large amount of financial sacrifice thrown in. She was studying psychology in the UK and used to fly over and visit me every summer break. Me being a boring old fart she volunteered at Australia Zoo to fill her time and became really passionate about conservation and I guess psychology went out the window. She did that every year for 3 years, summer and Xmas break, and when she finally got her degree, came back over and volunteered again until the Zoo offered her paid employment.

She is never still and always planning her next visit to another sanctuary. She went back to the UK this Xmas, and even went to Iceland for 5 days from there before coming back. Five yrs ago she was very shy and I had to drag every word out of her. Now she's entertaining an audience of 1000 or more...............I'm very proud of her and love her to death :-)

I went up to the zoo the other day and met another young girl (still at Uni) who had flown from melbourne at her own expense and was volunteering there over her Xmas break. I got chatting to her and her passion was orang utangs and she already has it "booked in" that when she qualifies, she is going to work at an orang utang sanctuary in Indonesia, purely with her meals and accommodation as pay and no salary provided. It lifts my heart to hear of youngsters with such passion, dedication and sacrifice.

Maybe she could branch out into animal psychology later on. She sounds like a great person & I'm glad that she is now getting paid for a job that she loves. Pass this on to her from us at POTN:

What an awesome job she has! Very nice shots; the third one shows the greatness of these raptors! Good detail on the first shot.
