“As a Wildlife ACT volunteer......”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

Monitoring endangered African Wild Dogs with Wildlife ACT here was fabulous. A small reserve with a huge variety of animals which are under a lot of pressure from poaching and snaring, hence the intensity of the monitoring there. Despite the rangers and anti poaching unit, the chance of animals getting snared is very high so the monitoring of wild dog and lion involves very early starts, midday breaks and evening finishes. It's exhausting as a voly but brilliant because of the regular wild dog sightings and learning about the threats, realities, urgency and necessity of daily tracking and monitoring and ultimately wildlife conservation. Volunteers participate in telemetry,recording data and necessary camp improvements and maintenance. Share accom for 5. Don't sign up if you're looking for relaxed game drives, have low energy or need your comforts. Warm water, electricity, cook your own meals with food provided. You'll get out of it what you put into it. Complainers and worry worts, this isn't for you. Google Wildlife ACT for costs and projects on other reserves etc. Good stuff!
