Help volunteer animal rights activists protect endangered species and raise orphaned wildlife at a shelter in Port Elizabeth. You will learn to understand the fascinating wildlife of South Africa! Our animal welfare volunteers particularly love the Vervet Monkeys, to whom we have dedicated another animal protection project at Tzaanen.

Safari to the Big Five of South Africa

As part of the Big Five Game Reserve project, you can help monitor the numbers of elephants, buffaloes, lions and rhinos, to gain valuable information on the conservation of these species. A fascinating adventure! But always make sure to stay away from the animals because the African bush is not a petting zoo. So if you like to have direct contact with the animals in Africa, the projects above are better off.

This technique allows researchers to create shark movement profiles to better understand their behavior.
