about their experiences with us.
The BBC World was with us to track a pangolin that was released a year ago by REST.

This beautiful Rock Python was re-homed from town to our reserve. Hope he has many happy and peaceful days. Our volunteers helped with its release. People are often fearful of large pythons and may kill them on sight. Documented attacks on humans are exceptionally rare, despite the species being common in many regions of Africa, and living in diverse habitats including those with agricultural activity. Few deaths are well-substantiated, with no reports of a human being consumed.
To complete my MSc study Forest and Nature Conservation at the Wageningen University in the Netherlands I did my internship at Muller Stud. I had an amazing time at the farm! Besides learning a lot about game management and husbandry, I gained a lot of confidence as I was allowed quite quickly to drive around myself and perform tasks on my own. It is amazing to drive around on the farm and see lots of game, and the beautiful sunset every day. This internship let me to decide I want to work in the conservation field in Africa. I now live in Namibia, and love to come back to the farm. If you are willing to work hard (long hours), learn about game management and are passionate about wildlife and nature, then I can certainly recommend this place. You are welcome to contact me anytime.
Kind regards, Mariska
