Pod Volunteer – Big 5 Conservation in South Africa – Residential – All Year

Join Pod Volunteer to actively contribute to monitoring and protect lions, rhinos, elephants, leopards and a variety of amazing animals whilst living on a beautiful coastal reserve

How can I help?
We are looking for volunteers to join our Big 5 Conservation project for 1 week +. Assist the team in locating and monitoring wildlife, recording integral data to support the reserve’s ecological plans, removing alien plant species, supporting community initiatives and help out with animal capture / relocation / introduction (if you are lucky enough for it to take place while you are there)! You will be introduced to the many animals and plants found on the reserve through orientation drives and a field booklet which includes animal, plant and bird checklists and identification kits.

Where will I be living?
Volunteers stay in a comfortable house right on the reserve and it’s not unusual to wake up to the sound of lions calling or seeing zebras eating at the fence! Weekends are free to relax and explore. A popular choice is to spend Saturday by the beach in the local town, have a meal out and then return to the reserve to spend Sunday relaxing by the pool.
