Morgane (Finding love in Costa Rica)

Story by Morgane Ristic

My name is Morgane, I’m a French 21-year-old passionate about wildlife conservation. I’ve always loved animals but I was never encouraged to go towards an animal-orientated field as it is not a good money maker…

But I was lucky enough to refuse to start higher education without having an idea of what I wanted my life to be. I spent a year volunteering in a monkey sanctuary in England, an experience that got me started in this field. There, I met the right people – or I guess I should say, the right person – my boyfriend and work partner. WeΒ  have just come back from managing a release site in the middle of a Costa RicanΒ  primary forest for a year and will soon be starting a new job in a wildlife rescue centre in Scotland this time.

Conservation isn’t only a job, it’s a lifestyle. You are not alone, and if you’re lucky, you might even get to meet your other half in the field πŸ™‚
