There are no further 2018 vacancies for volunteers. Our Green Army program is undergoing a refresh and we will be back with an even better experience to offer in 2019.
The description below is indicative of what you can expect. To register interest please use the form at the bottom of this page and we will update you when our new program is more advanced.
By signing up for the IAPF’s Green Army, you’ll be joining us here on the frontline of conservation. Members will be integrated into the lifestyle of an anti-poaching ranger.
This means heading out on patrols with our rangers, checking for snares and ensuring the integrity of the property is kept. As custodians of number of black rhino this is a task we don’t take lightly. During patrols you’ll learn bushcraft, botany and tracking with our experienced scouts whilst getting up close and personal with Africa’s wildlife.
In line with experiencing a ranger’s life, the camp, although comfortable, is a working camp. Members are required to pull their own weight with daily duties and tasks.
It’s hard work, but you’ll be able to say that you have helped us conserve some of Africa’s most pristine wilderness and wildlife. Many people come armed with a wealth of skills and experience while all others have is a strong passion for doing what’s right: protecting wildlife.
The Green Army initiative is an important means of funding for the IAPF, meaning we do charge for the experience. It enables us to maintain our training free of charge for rangers working in protected and volatile areas. This is the only way we have a chance at recruiting, training and maintaining the highest skilled rangers to protect our wildlife and wilderness.
