My name is Tom from Leeds and I have just completed my foundation degree.
During my project in Croatia at a bear refuge, I carried out different DIY tasks such as building furniture, creating enrichment for the bears and working on a carpark for coaches for the refuge.
In my free time, I spent time chatting with other members on the project, observing bear behaviour, went on a hike up a mountain to camp and learnt other skills such as fire making.
Thanks to this project, professionally I learned how to live and work with others.  The project taught me also how to lead if needed.  I have improved my knowledge of the use of tools and bear enrichment.
Personally, I have learnt that I am more capable to complete tasks that are practical.  I met a lot of new friends on this experience.
