D19 Malta Askham Aimee Kershaw-1

Hi, my name is Aimee Kershaw. I am 21 years old from Wakefield. I went on a project in Malta.
During my project, on a day to day basis, the activities were very hands on with the animals, including cleaning, handling and feeding the birds and reptiles and assisting with the animal presentations.
Most of my free time included travelling and exploring various places, including Gozo and paradise bay which are perfect places for snorkelling.
I have gained various practical animal handling skills with a range of birds and reptiles, whilst improving my species specific knowledge on the animal’s diet and housing requirements. Through communicating to the public about the park and its animals, whilst participating in the aviary feeding, parrot and reptile presentation I also improved my confidence with public speaking.
