D18 Malta Askham Chantelle Hanwell-1

My name is Chantelle Hanwell.
The project in Malta is incredible; The duration is spilt into two months, the first spent with reptiles, the second with the birds. The usual tasks are undergone each day such as feeding, cleaning, monitoring and educational presentations.
During my free time, my favourite place to visit was San Anton Gardens, the gardens were full of wildlife and plants, a beautiful relaxing place.
Thanks to Erasmus+, professionally I learned a wide range of skills from weighing the macaws and amazons to hand rearing monk parrots. I learned an incredible amount which will be beneficial for the working industry.
Beforehand I was nervous and unconfident with snakes, the project has helped me overcome that fear and I am now comfortable with the reptile.
