South Africa is home to several species under threat, like the critically endangered black rhinoceros and near threatened white rhinoceros. Our international conservation team in Karongwe Private Game Reserve, only an hour from Kruger National Park, works toward conserving the species found in the protected area by partnering with local and international organisations like the South African National, SAN Parks authority and the Endangered Wildlife Trust.
This program gives volunteers the opportunity to learn about the global issue of poaching and how international and South African organisations are working on prevention. The focus specifically concerns the poaching of rhinoceros. Volunteers will assist with fundraising efforts and create promotional materials to support these initiatives, as well as deliver environmental education workshops in the local community. There might also be the opportunity to attend lectures on the topics of poaching, the impact of losing important animals on the ecosystem and how anti-poaching efforts are set up and run.
Please note you can spend up to 12 hours a day collecting data which can be tiring, in the heat of the African sun.
