I spent 3 months with AVIVA volunteering at SANCCOB, and I can honestly say it was by far the most incredible experience of my life. I went purely out of my love for penguins, but i gained so much more out of it than I ever expected.
I made countless friends for life (even one who I realised lived in the same town as me!), gained an even higher admiration for penguins and made memories that ill treasure forever.
AVIVA were fantastic and supportive throughout, making my first-time alone travelling comfortable and easy, and the house was just amazing to live in.
I desperately hope to return one day, and I advise anyone who loves animals to work at SANCCOB - the naughty but lovable African penguins won't be around forever, but every little helps!
