Walking with African Wildlife

Main Project Information
Presented By Earthwatch
Goal Help protect African wildlife and ensure their ongoing health.
Task Survey animals in a wildlife preserve to help conserve them.
Where South Africa

You can join Dr. Dave Druce and a team of researchers and staff in an ongoing survey of the 15 largest herbivores in the park, thereby contributing to a long-term database of population trends and supporting effective management and decision-making. This is a rare chance to walk through scenery most people only see from a Land Rover. In the evening, you’ll gather around the campfire under southern constellations to share the day's encounters.
