Project Itinerary

This experience is of a real, working, conservation and wildlife management program. It can often be exhilarating when working with game capture and release, elephant and buffalo tracking with telemetry. Then again, some days can be a stretch and even laborious at times when trekking perimeter fences and hunting for traps. But this work is important! We are not a safari operation and don’t want to romanticize the work we do. There will be periods of high intensity when working directly with the animals and other times of less exciting, but 100% necessary tasks, when working on the ranch management aspect of the project.

Participants on our program will spend around one third of their time in wildlife environments (commercial and non-commercial game reserves). Through lecture based learning and practical interactions you will be exposed to the following:

  • Health & Safety
  • Immobilisation and tranquillisation of animals
  • Game Capture
  • Animal management
  • Ecosystems services support & biodiversity preservation
  • Threats to wildlife
  • Toxic and venomous animals
  • Animal health and nutrition
  • Every effort is made for you to experience

 

Participants will undertake visits to rural villages and township settlements to undertake “hands on” practical work with a broad range of domesticated animals. In the South African context, these animals are very often classified as “vulnerable and abused” and live under extremely difficult circumstances. As a result they are a high priority for our work. As volunteers and interns, it is also the environment in which you can contribute most effectively to animal welfare in South Africa. Through lecture based learning and practical interactions you will be exposed to the following:
