The Namibian desert is home to an abundance of incredible wildlife, and on this project you will have the chance to help with crucial research surrounding the animals living here. This project aims to create a huge, unfenced wildlife reserve which will provide refuge and safe haven for an extensive array of endangered species including cheetahs, spotted hyenas, brown hyenas and leopards. As a volunteer, you will assist in recording statistical data on the wildlife in this area, and once the data is collected it will be used by the in-country team to effectively manage the area in hopes to reduce human-wildlife conflict.
Volunteers will not only aid with data gathering and research, they may also partake in many exciting activities such as capture mark release, radio telemetry tracking, game counts, setting camera traps, hiking and exploring and feeding the cheetahs!
Another great highlight includes 'sundowners', allowing volunteers to sit, relax and watch the sunset over the dunes.
