We understand that planning a conservation placement is quite a big decision for you. We like to think that we put as much thought and planning into it as you do! This section gives you all the details that are maybe slightly less exciting than reading about the projects you can get involved in, but that are important nonetheless - so don't skip this part! It does not contain any dreaded fine print and it should answer a lot of the questions you might have, such as how much it would cost to join a project in Africa, how you get to your project and what you need to organise before you go.

This section gives you a bit more detail on how joining a conservation placement works - from the booking process to who meets you in South Africa and how you learn the ropes at your project.
Find out the details of what joining a conservation project costs, where the money goes and how you can finance your placement.
