Monitor behaviour and movements of elephants and rhino

Live in the heart of a big 5 game reserve and monitor behaviour and movements of Elephants and Rhino. Help the research team by gathering information in the field and spending time in the bush on conservation initiatives while being based at the award winning Thanda Game Reserve.

Your role as a volunteer will include:

• Monitoring the behaviour, feeding patterns and movement of a herd of elephant who were released into the reserve in early 2011.

• Monitoring the rhino population to support the data recorded by the anti-poaching. This will help the reserve managers to understand the health of the animals, which are part of an endangered  species reintroduction programme.

• Capturing data as required by the reserve management team on their ongoing endangered species work.

• Finding and removing snares. This is a vital part of the anti-poaching effort within a park.

• Carrying out physical work to help regenerate natural bush from reclaimed farmland including the  prevention of further soil erosion and the removal of old structures to avoid injuries for animals.

• Contributing to the long term strategy of removing alien plants species from the reserve.
