The Wildlife Research program gives wildlife enthusiasts, volunteers, students, scientists and interns of all ages and backgrounds an opportunity to get involved in the conservation and sustainability of African wildlife and ecosystems. Volunteers, interns, and students are critical in the continuation of our research and conservation efforts.

Volunteers, interns, and students spend five days per week assisting in various capacities of research and wildlife conservation. This can be in the form of field work collecting data, analyzing and entering data into our systems, or in the way of workshops and discussion days with our seasoned team members. We leave evenings and weekends open which allows the chance to explore South Africa and take part in various cultural and tourist activities. Based in the beautiful coastal town of Hartenbos, South Africa our volunteers, interns, and students have a unique experience of working hands on in conservation on a free roaming wildlife reserve while living within walking distance to our pristine blue flag beaches.

​​Operating with the embodiment of Nkonzo Wildlife Research ideals and goals, the mantra of "Educate Act Empower" is nowhere more evident than in the Wildlife Research and Conservation Program. Students are directly involved in protecting and studying African wildlife and ecosystems and also undergo educational sessions where the focus is in teaching the bigger picture through the better understanding of conservation biology, animal behavior, animal ethics and tourism, human-animal coexistence, and the many other areas of conservation.

​Volunteers, interns and students are assisting in critical hands on research and conservation initiatives in the field that impact the wildlife and environment in both short and long term goals and solutions. These two areas, Educate and Act, work together to foster and facilitate the most important aspect of these ideals, to Empower. Through hands-on initiatives and education one leaves Nkonzo Wildlife Research with a better understanding of the problems plaguing African wildlife, the efforts being made to assuage these issues, and how they can continue to work with conservation and make a change for the better of wildlife, ecosystems, and our planet.
