Congratulations to AfID volunteer Will on winning the May competition. The photo was taken my fellow AfID volunteer Susan who’s assignment in Belize overlapped with Will’s. Will is pictured feeding a sardine to a wild frigate bird just off the coast of Caye Caulker on a weekend snorkelling trip! The photo was taken during his six-week assignment supporting Friends for Conservation and Development.
