Make a meaningful impact in the monitoring and protection of local Big 5 species as you live and work in the African bush in the Kruger Area of South Africa.
You'll be based in a lodge in shared accommodation, inside a game reserve where you'll be surrounded by the wildlife of South Africa's bushveld - it comes complete with a bar, snack shop, pool and 3 meals daily on weekdays.
Monitor movements and numbers of local wildlife populations to help researchers gauge the effect of misguided culling initiatives and poaching. You'll do this during daily game drives and even have the opportunity to take part in an exhilarating night game drive.
Help with various environment management initiatives like alien plant removal and snare sweeps to maintain this pristine ecosystem.
