You can work with three different wildlife care and rehabilitation projects in South Africa and Zimbabwe – the Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre, the Care for Wild Africa project and the Chipangali Wildlife Orphanage and Research Project. Each centre has some distinct specialisations, giving you practical work experience that combines wildlife care and veterinary nursing with more extended involvement in conservation issues, such as rhino conservation or community education.
