African Conservation Experience offers conservation travellers the once in a lifetime opportunity to work alongside wildlife professionals in southern Africa, such as wildlife researchers and wildlife vets. You’ll be helping some of the most charismatic and recognisable of animals: Our wildlife conservation projects offer you the opportunity to volunteer with animals such as African lions, African Elephants and black rhino, amongst many others.
Our wildlife conservation projects cover wildlife research and management projects, wildlife care and rehabilitation projects, wildlife veterinary experiences, marine conservation and more. They help to ensure long term support for the vulnerable wildlife and local communities we work with, while giving you the amazing opportunity to work with wildlife. We also offer shorter, focused wildlife conservation courses which give you a great introduction to specific African species and conservation topics.
CONSERVATION PROJECTS WORKING WITH LIONS
African lions are the biggest of the African carnivores. Despite this, the African lion is classified as 'vulnerable' on the IUCN red list of endangered species. Whether it’s conducting a lion study or recording lion movements, our lion conservation projects gather together determined people who are interested in working with lions.
CONSERVATION PROJECTS WORKING WITH ELEPHANTS
The African elephant is the world’s largest land animal. Yet, despite their large stature and presence, African elephants are classified as 'vulnerable' on the IUCN red list of endangered species. Our elephant conservation projects bring together caring, enthusiastic people to help to research, monitor and protect these majestic animals.
CONSERVATION PROJECTS WORKING WITH RHINO
Despite its rugged exterior and powerful stature, the African rhino is a vulnerable animal. From volunteering at a rhino orphanage to gaining veterinary experience while assisting wildlife vets, our rhino conservation projects are great for anyone who is touched by the plight of the rhino and wants to make a real difference.
