Volunteers in Africa Celebrate World Cup

Tuesday 29th June 2010

ACE volunteers have got into the World Cup spirit whilst working in Southern Africa

African Conservation Experience (ACE) Volunteers have got into the FIFA World Cup mood, blowing vuvuzelas, painting faces and donning the national team colours!  The volunteers working at Shimongwe Wildlife Veterinary Experience with Dr Masterson, based near Hluhluwe, have got into the World Cup Spirit with rhino calf feeding taking on a more colourful approach.

There’s no greater place to be during the World Cup than South Africa and these volunteers enjoy an all round African experience working out in the field with Dr Masterson. As well as working on a variety of endangered and high profile species the volunteers help look after the two rhinos at Dr Masterson’s home.

The Shimongwe Wildlife Veterinary Experience gives volunteers the opportunity to work closely with a wildlife veterinarian.  The project is based in some of the most wildlife-rich areas in southern Africa.  Volunteers will join the practice and day-to-day activities of an experienced wildlife veterinarian in the field and, depending on the vet, sometimes in a clinic.

African Conservation Experience has been sending volunteers to Africa for over a decade and is the original, most experienced organisation for conservation placements in Southern Africa.

Can you see yourself here? If you have passion for wildlife and conservation this is the opportunity to work closely with a wildlife veterinarian out in the field.
