“Conservation is a state of harmony between men and land”

Get involved with our partner’s rhino and cape mountain zebra research by joining us as a wildlife conservation research guest or intern!

Thanks to recent media coverage, most everyone throughout the world is aware that the status surrounding African rhinos has reached a critical stage.
Due to increased poaching throughout South Africa it is more important than ever to protect and support the rhinos we still have. One of the ways to do this is by protecting and supporting the birthing of healthy calves and understanding their group dynamics, while monitoring them.

Our long-term project is analysing several key areas of wild white rhinos including gestation behaviour, territoriality, dominance, and home range movement.

We are also involved with research on the highly endangered Cape Mountain Zebra.
Once widely spread this species was almost lost to extinction due to human encroachment, habitat loss, and unregulated hunting practices. As the species slowly regains footing it is important to study their natural feeding ecology and reproductive nature.

During the day we will spend our time on the reserve, close to the lively town of Mosselbay, while in the evenings and on weekends you can explore the bay area and surrounding Garden route.
