About Program

Track and monitor wildlife in one of Malawi's top national parks and contribute to vital research that is supporting the country's conservation efforts.

Malawi’s incredible wildlife is facing a number of threats, from deforestation and biodiversity loss to human-wildlife conflict and the illegal trade in products such as ivory and bushmeat. Our research projects are designed to improve conservation knowledge and practice and include issues such as biodiversity monitoring and wildlife management. This means that as a volunteer you will have the opportunity to spend time out in the field learning new skills while contributing to research that makes a real difference. Whether it be radio tracking large carnivores, assisting on camera trap surveys or creating identification kits for elephants, your work will be vital to ongoing conservation actions in Malawi.

Program Impact

One of Malawi’s premiere game viewing sites, Liwonde is home to some of the country's largest elephant and black rhino populations. In recent years Liwonde has been the host of wildlife translocations and reintroductions making it the top park in Malawi for carnivore sightings, most notably cheetahs and lions. If you volunteer with us you’ll be supporting vital efforts to protect and enhance these species and their habitats as well as being part of a much bigger picture working to mitigate many the challenges facing Malawi's wildlife and nature parks, from deforestation and pollution to poaching and climate change.
