CLAIRE Simon’s roommates will include gibbons and monkeys when she heads to Thailand this year as part of International Student Volunteers (ISV).
The Bellevue Heights resident was selected to take part in a two-week volunteer program supporting conservation projects in Thailand.
“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to do something that will make a difference,” Mrs Simon said.
The 29-year-old will care for animals that have been rescued from the illegal wildlife smuggling trade.
Mrs Simon is studying Forensic and Analytic Chemistry at Flinders University and hopes that working with endangered animals will help develop her scientific analysis skills.
Flinders University will be hosting a quiz night on Saturday, June 25, to help raise money for the trip. ISV is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to educate the community about conservation.
