Wildlife Conservation & Management

Study elephants and predators during a conservation internship at the Tuli Conservation Project

 

Our wildlife conservation and management projects give you the opportunity to experience wildlife in its natural environment. You will work alongside experienced rangers and field researchers and, depending on your project choice, contribute to these important conservation tasks:

  • Habitat preservation
  • Reserve management
  • Studies on animal behaviour and movements
  • Wildlife capture and relocation

These projects give you the opportunity to work behind the scenes in some amazing wildlife reserves where you become a member of the local ranger teams or to sample the life of a wildlife researcher working in the African bush.
