Interested in wildlife conservation and photography? One of our newest volunteer placements, African Wildlife Photography and Conservation, needs volunteers to help photograph the local wildlife to help raise local awareness of wildlife conservation. This is a great opportunity to interact with locals, get up close and personal with some serious wildlife, and help out an organization in need. Not a pro behind the camera? Not to worry, as there is a three-day photography course given by an experienced wildlife photography included in the placement.
Set in beautiful St. Lucia, near the eastern coast of South Africa, this volunteer placement lasts for four weeks. St. Lucia is situated within the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, a beautiful area that was declared as South Africa’s first Natural World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Encompassing almost half a million acres, it is a stunning and ecologically diverse area, where five different eco-systems join, and where you find savannahs, wetlands, swamps, beaches, and a great wealth of wildlife. The area is home to the Zulu tribe; a group of people with a very lively and colorful culture.
