Wildlife Projects in Africa – Wild Life Act
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
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.
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.
Zululand is recognized as one of the most biodiverse wildlands in Africa, with much of it declared a World Heritage Site. Conservation volunteers work across 5 unique parks - most of them nationally proclaimed reserves. For every 2 weeks that you join us as a volunteer, you have the opportunity to live and work on a different park. Our work focuses on endangered and priority species including the African Wild Dog, Cheetah, Rhino, Lion, Elephant, Leopard and Vulture.
