Join this hands on project as a conservation education or research ecology volunteer and help protect the environmental integrity of Nature's Valley. Volunteers will gain experience in a wide range of skills whilst getting a insight into life as a conservationist in Africa. 

Conservation Education Volunteers

Become a conservation education volunteer and take part in a grass roots project that brings real change to communities and how they see the natural resources they use. This is an opportunity to engage local school children, project partners, conservation professionals and the local community. Typical activities include:

  • Event assitance and support during holiday programmes
  • Environmental calender days and other events
  • Facilitation of school groups during outdoor classrooms
  • Research support for updating of environmental education resources
  • Planning of outdoor activities with eco clubs and school camps
  • Support and assistance during community projects and events (e.g. tree planting and beach clean-ups)

Research Ecology Volunteers

As a research volunteer you will have the opportunity to join a team of acclaimed biologists with decades of experience in African conservation based research. Working 3 - 4 days a week in the field, this is the perfect insight to life as a conservationist in Africa. 

Research volunteers will work on long term ecological projects, experiencing conservation based research in several different biomes and habitat types including beach, estuary, river, fynbos (shrubland or heathland vegetation), forest and urban areas. This project will give you a range of experience, working with whales, dolphins, fish, aquatic macro invertebrates, seals, marine birds, primates and more!

Volunteers can join year round from 2 to 12 weeks in duration. 

Individuals and students all welcome.

Cost for food, accommodation, field experience, transport to and from work, laundry and cleaning, internet and one on one mentoring starts at £580.
