Conservation Volunteering  

Click here for more information

The abundance and variety of wildlife on display across the African continent is truly spectacular. Unfortunately this asset is under severe threat, as human populations explode and the struggle for land intensifies.

As the great Nelson Mandela once said: “Ultimately conservation is about people. If you don’t have sustainable development around these (wildlife) parks, then the people will have no interest in them, and the parks will not survive”

African Impact aims to turn this trend around as it initiates and supports volunteer conservation projects across Africa. These projects are built around the conservation and protection of Africa’s wildlife through voluntary work and education. The conservation projects are ideal for anyone who is excited at the prospect of living and working among Africa’s wildlife.

As a conservation volunteer, you could find yourself monitoring rhino populations, volunteering on cheetah and lion rehabilitation projects, combating poaching or witnessing the predatory behaviour of Great White Sharks – Our conservation projects are as diverse as the African continent itself.
