    Yup! haha

    A week or two ago i applied for a voluntary position at Slapton Sands, just for the summer months and unpaid, but to me it would be valued experience. But due to the fact the only animal related experience i have was a week in a vets when i was at school a couple months at a birds of prey center, i didnt expect a reply!


    Well yesterday evening, after coming home from seeing my uncle i checked the phone to see if there were any messages, none....but i guessed as applications shut on the 8th, only last friday i thought its best giving them a week to get back to me, i checked my email and saw a reply from the center...

    They've invited me in for an 'Informal Discussion' Monday at 11:30am XD

    So fingers crossed for me, im willing to give up all my days off work for this place, have no days off for 3 months for this position as thats how much it means to me and how much i wanna suceed in conservation


    The job im going for is 'Volunteer Beach Warden' and this is what the job is about....
