Interns & Volunteers

Aim Our internship has been specifically designed to provide a means for young international students, looking to pursue a career in conservation, a unique opportunity to be exposed to current concepts and principles of conservation and ecology within a South African context. Led by experts in both conservation and ecology, this programme will provide useful insight to the many different fields of conservation and ecology that will enable students to make a more informed decision with regard to the next step of their career. They will leave with knowledge and skills gained from practical and theoretical study, across a wide range of conservation management and ecological research modules.

The internship is designed to inspire, educate and empower international students who seek exposure to conservation and ecology specifically within a Southern African context.

Objectives

  • Provide an academically stimulating program that incorporates both theoretical and practical components
  • Cover an array of current and relevant concepts and principles in conservation and ecology
  • Efficiently managed syllabus to maximise time and work load management, keeping the students constructively occupied without allowing them to be over or underworked
  • A unique opportunity to experience a relevant and applicable insight into conservation and ecology, in a dynamic, fun and exciting way

Modules: All modules consist of both practical and theoretical components, which involve lectures presented by the module facilitators and students, discussion and debate sessions, and practical application of concepts.
