Kenya: 1 Week Conservation Add-On
Many volunteers taking part in non-Conservation placements in Kenya are interested in the chance to also spend a few days working on the Conservation project. This offers a unique chance to experience the natural environment and participate in important conservation activities. This week-long project can only be done in combination with one of our other Kenya projects.
We are now able to offer all volunteers in Kenya the opportunity to add a 1 Week Conservation Add-On to the end of their main placement. This project can be arranged to fit in with the end of your main project and will give you a full week working on the conservation project and the chance to become involved in a range of conservation work.
Conservation volunteers are based in the Rift Valley, in the heart of a 3500 acre reserve surrounded by the wild animals that Kenya is renowned for.
On arrival volunteers will be given a full introduction to the current projects; you will then spend the week working on the same schedule as regular and more experienced volunteers. Projects include monitoring Rothschild’s giraffes, building and maintaining tree nurseries and remote sensor camera inventories. Work consists of a combination of observational research tasks and practical hands on work.
The cost of this programme includes food and accommodation for the week, insurance and all work related transport.
To add this project to your time in Kenya, please contact your local recruitment office before you go or speak to a member of our staff in Kenya.
