The program
This fabulous project was developed to simply save the lives of the incredible native animals of South Africa. The Wildlife Protection program is based on a spectacular Game Reserve just outside Port Elizabeth. The 6000 hectares of land are filled with a variety of wild life, including the ‘Big 5’. In addition to the mixture of grasslands and sub-tropical vegetation, the reserve has naturally formed pockets of water, amazing rock formations and splendid flora. This program plays a significant role is helping to maintain the reserve and protect the animals, supplying a willing volunteer labor force to assist them. Like many conservation programs, funds are greatly lacking, and volunteers are essential to the success of the project. Duties of volunteers vary on a day to day basis and are dependent on factors such as the weather. The work is mostly outdoors and will sometimes be in unpleasant conditions, so volunteers will need to be willing to lend a hand with all sorts of tasks.

Goals of this Project:

  • Work to save the lives of vulnerable animals
  • Improve the future prospects of endangered animals in South Africa
  • Research the animals on the reserve to learn more about their lives and ultimately, how to protect them
  • Create an environment that enables different cultures to work together with the goal of saving animal lives.

How you can help

Volunteers on this project play an essential role in the protection of South Africa’s wonderful wildlife on this special game reserve. No two days are ever the same on this project, and volunteers will gain amazing experience working on research, reserve maintenance and actually caring for animals. From participating on animal counts to monitoring animals and accompanying guides on game drives, this is an amazing opportunity for any international volunteer and a fantastic ‘behind the scenes’ experience that most people would never have the chance to participate in. This game reserve protects animals from the many dangers they face from a multitude of fronts. By participating in this program, volunteers will be providing true assistance to protecting these majestic creatures.

Volunteers will contribute in a number of ways and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Track and monitor animals
  • Participate in animal counts
  • Mend fences and clearing paths
  • Remove alien vegetation
  • Feed animals
  • General visitor management
  • Accompany guides on game drives


Tagesablauf

A volunteer’s work day on this project will generally last between 4 and 6 hours and while we ask all volunteers to be flexible in this regard, a typical daily schedule is likely to go something like this:

7:00am Breakfast in the communal area

8:15am Pre-start meeting with project supervisor

8:30am VOLUNTEERING DUTIES START

A tea break and lunch break will be fitted in during the day, but often the timing of breaks will change based on the needs of the local staff and number of volunteers on hand.

4:00pm VOLUNTEERING DUTIES END

Evenings Free time to simply relax, hang out with your fellow volunteers, have dinner together, then relax some more!
