As a volunteer at this project you will contribute to the reserve in a meaningful way by assisting the reserve in essential research, important species monitoring and reserve tasks. This creates a rewarding experience for the reserve, volunteers and staff. Volunteering at this project will not only provide an unforgettable experience in the wilds of Africa but also provides biological students with vital field experience for their future careers.
All activities are ethically minded for the protection of the community and the fauna and flora of the area.
This project is specifically selected to give you a unique and personal experience. Khaya believes in smaller projects with a limited number of volunteers to guarantee this uniqueness. Volunteer numbers therefore differ from 1-10 and as volunteers come and go numbers can differ. Most volunteers are from the UK, USA and Western Europe.
The project is in the process of rewilding the land to create optimum biodiversity and to be a centre for endangered species conservation. We need volunteers to assist in all forms of research and monitoring of important species, without whom we would not be able to know whether the ecosystem is healthy and sustainable. Volunteers will provide baseline data on the species, ecology, interactions of all organisms in the area. The baseline data is essential in knowing that we are creating a safe, enriching and efficient space to protect endangered species.
As a volunteer you will have adventures in all aspects of conservation such as:
• Researching leopard population
• Cheetah and elephant monitoring
• Bird and ecological surveys
• Analysing game transects
• Possibly translocations and releases
• Hands-on work projects of restoring fauna
• Recording and evaluating data
• Sustaining the habitat
