ANIMAL AVENGERS/WILDLIFE WARRIOR VOLUNTEER PROGRAM

We will lose something deep within ourselves if we allow our wilderness to be destroyed.

Wildlife & wilderness areas in Africa have never been so desperate as now. After the 2006 elections in South Africa we have experienced & witnessed the dramatic & blatant rape of our wilderness areas, indiscriminate poaching by organized gangs & crime syndicates. This carnage takes place in the once game rich areas of southern Africa.

Hundreds of thousands of wire snares are being set deep in the African bush, where animals get caught & endure a horrific long & agonizing death. The bounty of this indiscriminate poaching is illegally exported to the far east to be traded on the black markets of Asia.

Les Brett, a military veteran & game ranger, established the `Dung Beetle Bush School in 1997, with the purpose of teaching & training volunteers in conservation.

Dung Beetle bush school introduced the wildlife warrior volunteer program to bring conservation spirited volunteers from all corners of the globe to help in the fight to save Africa’s last wilderness areas & to combat the onslaught.

The volunteers undergo a bush survival course & are then deployed alongside our anti-poaching rangers where they get involved in all aspects of conservation, including the removal of snares & monitoring wildlife movement.

The wildlife warrior program is a 10-day  hands-on deployment in Zululand & Limpopo provinces of South Africa. It delivers an unequaled conservation experience with a huge sense of self achievement.

Cost. $2500.00 per person

The cost includes all tuition and training, all in country transport, meals & accommodation, entry to National parks & game reserves & conservation levy. You will also be giving back to Animal Avengers who is supporting various programs in South Africa fighting this same fight to save the animals!
