Animals have always interested me from a young age but it was during my five years journey across different countries that I really started to observe them in detail. Birds are the most widespread and therefore more easily observable. Their behavior as well as that of the other animals I have encountered is always fascinating to watch and study. A large part of the wild species, some of which I have observed, are endangered and I think it is our duty to do everything we can to understand and protect them.

VI. A step towards future

After five years of traveling, I am back in France with the desire to jump in the future. The first step involves the creation of content reflecting my skills and intended for my candidacy in the University of Bristol Wildlife Filmmaking Course. I focus on nature and animals. The world around me. During the months of November, December 2019 and January 2020, I work on the creation of videos, photographs and articles on the subject of Camargue and more broadly on the theme of flora and fauna. I seek to develop my understanding of the environment around me and my observation of wildlife. Then in February 2020, I am back in Chamonix for a second season in hospitality while awaiting the response of my application to Bristol. As I have been working for several weeks, a global health crisis starts following the appearance of a new virus and the world ends up in quarantine.
