Calling all volunteers who have already spent time volunteering at the Namibia Wildife Sanctuary or who have this on their wish-list! Currently on offer is a special opportunity to join the brand new “Wildlife Rehabilitation Course” from Sunday 4 October – Saturday 17 October 2015 and Sunday 7 February – Saturday 20 February 2016.

This brand new venture, which will be offered twice annually – in February and October each year – is specifically designed for students in the veterinary, zoology and wildlife fields as well as anyone with a real interest in expanding their current knowledge of various species of African wildlife.
The course will be offered over a 14 day period in which day 1 and day 14 will be reserved for arrivals and departures. During the course days (of which there are 10, there are 2 days off to relax) participants will have the privilege of working with three of the sanctuaries wildlife staff including Marlice van Vuuren, founder and director who is a world-renowned conservationalist with a wealth of knowledge and experience.
Days will include theoretical sessions in the mornings which will include discussions on many topics relating to the various species of wildlife in Namibia as well as the role of the wildlife sanctuary and the circumstances of the animals who come into its care. Practical sessions with follow in the afternoons with chances to observe firsthand the behaviour of the species studied in the morning. There will be opportunities to visit the big cats and wild dogs as well as walking with baboons into the veldt.
