Volunteers with a calling to educate people on Fracking or who want to do more research in this area. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Alter 18+
Alleinreisend
Pärchen
Familien
Gruppen
Rollstuhlfahrer
The Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal is considered an area of interest for potential shale gas extraction using Hydraulic Fracturing (Fracking). Texas-based Rhino Gas & Oil has applied for authorisation to search for petroleum on almost 10 000 farms in the Midlands, an area covering more than 16% of the province’s surface area!
Fracking is a toxic and water intensive process with up to 600 chemicals and 20 million litres of fresh water used per fracking well!  Fracking has been linked to sensory, respiratory, and neurological damage as well as inflicting irreparable damage to the environment.
South Africa is a water scarce country, in the grips of one of the worst droughts seen in decades. The Drakensberg Mountains serve as the ‘water factories’ of KwaZulu-Natal. It is vitally important to protect these areas which sustain the flow of clean water, supporting the lives and livelihoods of nearly 6 million people downstream.
Every person has the right to clean air and safe drinking water and we are looking for volunteers to share this message far and wide. All members of the public need to know exactly what the dangers of fracking are, and how to oppose it as well as what the major trade-offs are between economic growth and environmental protection. The already established team in South Africa need Volunteers with a passion for protecting the ecosystem willing to either do environmental research with the existing team in various areas earmarked for fracking or willing to join the campaigners in bringing awareness to their cause. 
Volunteer Researchers will join the existing team of Researchers to look at the impact fracking could have on our ecosystem and prove that the emissions from fracking natural gas will double that of coal; that the natural gas from shale is no cleaner than burning gas or oil; that South Africa’s climate is suitable for solar, wind and wave energy and why these alternatives should be given priority.  Volunteer Researchers will be in the field assisting with establishing a Strategic Environmental Assessment. Researchers could also use any creative skills they have to assist in making films, marketing the campaign, graphic design of slogans that capture attention and show the findings made in blogs and social media.
Volunteer Campaigners will assist the Frack Free SA Campaign by sharing their message and creating awareness with the public. Volunteers will help by sharing the risks of fracking far and wide, either virtually (via the internet) or physically, by speaking to communities, schools, rural farmers etc.  Frack Free SA Campaign coordinates all public events that Volunteers will be speaking at.
