Always dreamt of a rustic expedition amidst the African jungle? An animal lover who's passionate about the fight to protect some of the worlds most endangered species? Looking for the experience of a lifetime? Then our Gorilla Research Expedition in Cameroon is for you! The Gorilla Research Expedition is located in the Lebialem-Mone Forest Landscape about 37km from Dschang, Cameroon. The Lebialem-Mone Forest Landscape is one of the ecosystems in the Western Cameroon Highlands Region that has a high biodiversity species potential. The gorillas that inhabit the forest of western Cameroon are believed to belong to the Cross River gorilla sub-species of the western lowland gorillas. They are considered to be the most threatened of all the African primates and at the same time one of the 25 most threatened species of mammals in the world, as published by the IUCN. There are only around 300 of them remaining in the wild. Volunteers will be trekking and camping in the rain forest recording information on the wildlife in the area, including information about nesting signs, direct sightings of apes, vocalisation, feeding signs and tracks. Volunteers also participate in conservation education conducted in the local schools and communities. Children are taught the ecology of the great ape, their importance, habitat needs and the importance of conserving the great apes. Volunteers between the ages of 20 and 70 are welcome to join – as long as they are fit and healthy and aware of the extreme conditions of the project No specific required experience necessary, just a keen interest in wildlife and conservation is important. Volunteers must be very fit and prepared to trek through harsh environments with extreme temperatures that can make things very physically demanding. Sound like your kind of project?!
