Tomas Ludvig

I booked my trip with AVIVA because all I need (accommodation, airport transfers etc.) was included in the services provided by AVIVA. After initial training as SANCCOB I became a valuable member of the team and I helped save the future of Penguins and other seabirds. SANCCOB is a leading institution with the aim to save African Penguins and other species and has a really good reputation. After initial training that emphasizes the importance of disinfection and cleanliness, I also was taught how to prepare the food for Penguins. After that I started to work with Penguins - feeding, giving them medication and tubing. It was hard work, but it was always so wonderful when the Penguins approached me and wanted to eat some fish. I worked long hours but the join I felt seeing them getting stronger day by day is unforgettable. It was an amazing experience and I will always remember it!
