Graduate volunteers with exotic animal rehabilitation and research studies in Thailand and South Africa

Rehabilitating previously captive animals for WFFT in Thailand and studying elephant behaviour with AERU in South Africa (African Elephant Research Unit) was a dream gap year for IEG Animal Management graduate Nathan Scott.

Nathan knew from a young age that he wanted to work in conservation and, upon leaving school, joined Stamford College to study Level 3 Animal Studies and then a degree in Animal Management. During his final year he also gained valuable work experience working for us internally as a part-time Animal Technician, which enabled him to save and fund this volunteering work.

Although Nathan's volunteering has ended and he is currently back in the UK, this adventurous graduate has further escapades planned, including studying wildlife in Ecuador and looking after orangutans in Borneo. However, before those adventures begin, Nathan is converting the degree he gained with us into a bachelor's degree, with a one-year top-up course starting this September with Moulton College. 

We are sure Nathan will continue to make a positive difference in the conservation sector and look forward to hearing from him as his adventures continue and his career develops.
