BSc (Hons) Wildlife Conservation and Environmental Management student, Sam Beaumont, has challenged himself to a parachute jump in April, in aid of Veterans for Wildlife.
Sam, 22, from Dorchester, Dorset said: “I’ve always wanted to do a parachute jump and it’s just one of those things that sometimes you never get round to doing.
“Over the Christmas period, my girlfriend encouraged me to take the chance and book it; my jump is now scheduled for April 8 in Salisbury, Wiltshire.”
Sam has chosen to support the charity, Veterans for Wildlife which is an international charity, committed to the protection of wildlife and the world’s critically endangered species.
Veterans for Wildlife combines highly skilled and experienced former service personnel, who play key roles in conservation and preventing wildlife crime.
Sam added: “Nowadays, there’s such a choice of charities to donate to. I wanted to choose one that was close to my heart, which people, especially those who have similar interests, could sponsor me to do the jump for.
“If you watch programmes such as Blue Planet or other wildlife shows, you can easily understand why this charity is worthwhile.
“I feel fine about doing the jump, mostly because I love the adrenaline and rush of doing something different.”
