Hello everyone, my name is Clara and I'm in Drasi for 3 months.
When I arrived, it was dark so I couldn't see the Greek scenery right away and enjoy the sunsets that I discovered later !
If like me you need to be away from the anxious situation of Covid, Drasi is your destination ! It is located a few kilometers from Thessaloniki, in the middle of the countryside and 30 minutes from the sea on foot.
So I took advantage of my first days of quarantine to go for a walk with the volunteer who was already there, Ellie, who like everyone here gave me a very warm welcome! I would say that the watchwords here are kindness and caring ! Everyone is adorable !
My first experiences at work were very enriching, I learned how to clean the cages and feed the animals, but also how to catch and hold them well. The first time I entered the big aviaries, I realized that the Greek volunteers trusted us very quickly and from the 2nd day I started to be independent. A short time ago we released a fox, we thought it was blind but after some tests it seemed to be able to fend for itself in the wild, we hope that it has managed to find a small burrow now.
It will soon be a month that I've been here and I really haven't seen the time go by !
