1. Visit the Arctic and Antarctic.

After watching the amazing David Attenborough in BBC’s Frozen Planet I now really want to visit the poles.  With loads of great wildlife and an out of this world landscape who wouldn’t want to visit and surely you can’t go to one and not the other...

Likelihood rating: 6/10

2.  See a Pangolin in the wild.

After seeing an article on the Pangolin I would love to be able to see one of these rare species in the wild and hope to see them become less endangered in the future.

South Africa Wildlife Conservation 

3.  Game Ranger on a Game Reserve in South Africa

Since I volunteered on a game reserve one summer I have kept a love for the savannah and its amazing wildlife with me.  I would love to be one of those people that know all there is to know about the wildlife over there.  I was so impressed by the level of knowledge the guides and rangers had of the park they worked in and I learnt so much while I was out there but there is so much more to learn!

4.  Go to the Amazon

I really want to visit the Amazon rainforest; I am just working on not freaking out at the sight of giant insects.  I feel that could be an issue in the middle of the rainforest...
