Wildlife Projects in Africa – Wild Life ACT
Our Volunteer Projects
Leopard & Whale Survey
A unique project which combines our ongoing work conducting the largest camera-trap based leopard census in the world, along with surveying the northward migration of Humpback Whales off the coast of Southern Africa to investigate population growth. *Please note that we have concluded our Whale Survey project and hope to run it again soon! Dates TBA
Southern Drakensberg Conservation Project
The Southern Drakensberg Conservation Project is a fairly new project focusing on the monitoring of endangered and critically endangered vultures, and various other much needed priority species and protected area boundary conservation work. The vulture conservation work involves nest monitoring and vulture-safe feeding site management and monitoring, management of a long-term camera trap survey and various protected area boundary support, such as alien plant control and emergency response for issues related to vultures and other priority species.
Marine Conservation Volunteering
Our Seychelles volunteer project focuses on three key aspects: Endangered Species monitoring, Marine Conservation and Ecosystem Restoration. For a unique ecotourism experience which allows you to give something back by supporting a dedicated conservation research and volunteer team on a private tropical island paradise, come and support those volunteering in the Seychelles. Ecotourists live and experience land and marine conservation life on the exclusive North Island in the Seychelles - considered by many to be the most beautiful archipelago in the world with its luminous white beaches, granite outcrops and azure oceans.
Volunteer With Leopards
Wildlife ACT is officially contracted by the international wild cat organisation, Panthera, to conduct Leopard population surveys within South Africa. This involves conducting a number of exciting, short-term Leopard Population Surveys using remote camera trapping survey methods. The survey is the largest on Leopards of its kind in the world where we're working together with provincial parks to help inform management to improve Leopard conservation.
Volunteer With Endangered Species
Zululand is recognized as one of the most biodiverse wildlands in Africa, with much of it declared a World Heritage Site. Wildlife conservation volunteers work across 5 unique parks - most of them nationally proclaimed reserves. For every 2 weeks that you join us as a conservation volunteer, you will have the opportunity to live and work on a different park. Our work focuses on endangered and priority wildlife species, including the African Wild Dog, Cheetah, Rhino, Lion, Elephant, Leopard and Vulture.
