Hello!

    Hello there! 

    Thank you for checking in!

     Before you go further it is important for us that we get a bit more personal and get to know each other in order to create a good relationship. For this, I thought it would be best to tell you a bit about myself.

    My name is Eleonore Op de Beeck, I am a veterinary conservationist with over 18 years previous experience as a vet clinician and surgeon, during my early years as a vet I have been studying wildlife and have been an intern in various marine mammal parks, being Sea world, one of them and later on, when I discovered the truth about captivity I decided to not take that route, I then have been involved in many rescue centres both for marine animals and land animals while being a small animal vet surgeon.

     

    I'm an entrepreneur, a travelpreneur, an author, public speaker, globe trotter and passionate about life woman.

    Food and cooking are also things I love, I became plant-based back in 2011 as I knew the relationships with health and what we ate, reducing meat consumption contributes to lesser environmental impact.

     I did a Master's degree on food safety and zoonotic diseases as with the recent pandemic, I believe that learning more about the relationships between us humans and the animals that surrounds us and how their microorganisms can affect us both and create a major impact on global health as well as how the food system is causing  such a decline in our health but also planetary health.

    While being a small animal vet with many years in practice and being very burned out by it, I felt I wasn't helping enough and wanted to do more, explore the world, help those animals in need that don't have a home. 

    I went on my first volunteering trip in South Africa and that's when I realised what I really wanted to do! Travel is another passion I have, so I would combine travelling and helping animals around the globe! And although it sounds like a dream come true, it's not the easiest path to take but for sure the most rewarding. 

    I am certified in Chinese food therapy, Chinese herbal medicine and Chinese acupuncture as a way to reduce the toxic load on our animals by providing a more holistic approach to curing diseases in animals and avoid the overuse of antibiotics and other drugs as well as over vaccination.

    As veterinarians, we are on the front line of the ONE HEALTH approach, which is defined as a collaborative, multisectoral, and transdisciplinary approach with the goal of achieving optimal health outcomes recognizing the interconnection between people, animals, plants, and their shared environment.

    Another BIG passion of mine is the ocean and sailing is my favourite way to travel the world whenever possible. During my early years as a vet student I participated in internships and research efforts in marine mammals.

     

      Thru my many years travelling and sailing I have witnessed loads of plastic waste on the beach and the ocean and have taken part of beach cleanups around the globe to help but also to create awareness and showcase what we are doing to our BLUE PLANET. Soon I will provide courses on marine conservation and plastic pollution management.

    After experiencing so much joy having amazing adventures travelling the world, I wanted to share this with everybody, this is how DrEleonoregowild was born, where I offer amazing adventure travels and volunteering opportunities helping out conservation projects around the globe for everybody that is willing to contributing to a better world and make a difference.

    I am strong believer of "DO GOOD AND GOOD WILL BE DONE TO YOU" and that we are here on this planet to do great things, not just "survive". 

          <<Leave a legacy, live with passion, travel the world, help others, be the change you want to see in the world>>

    So, if you agree with me.....

                                                                    SIGN UP & JOIN ME!

    Love, 

    Eleonore
