“I am so grateful for the opportunity to learn about the illegal traffic trade in Guatemala and the rehabilitation process of a wide array of animals that to be honest I didn't know existed. I am also very thankful for the opportunity to meet such a diverse group of people who asked the right questions and who made great friends. Basically from having conversations with everyone I realized how much I was unaware of and was left questioning many things about myself, which is awesome! ” -Amanada from Canada
