CIS Australia: Volunteer Abroad at a Wildlife Conservation

Posted by on March 12th, 2015 · 2015, Volunteer

This incredibly rewarding ecotourism project involves working at a game reserve in Port Elizabeth, where you’ll have the opportunity to work with South Africa’s Big 5: the rhino, lion, cape buffalo, leopard and African elephant.

The game reserve’s core focus is on wildlife and conservation, and all work done by volunteers helps to improve the quality of the reserve. Don’t expect to be bored on this program – there will be something new, exciting and interesting to do each day.

Activities you will be involved in include caring for animals, conservation education, vegetation rehabilitation, planting, fencing, monitoring animals, game drives and much more. You will find the game rangers and all the staff at the reserve highly informative – come with an open mind and be prepared to learn a lot about animal conservation and wildlife in South Africa.
