Elephant & Rhino Conservation

This project is dedicated to the conservation of wildlife, with a focus on protecting endangered black rhinos, elephants, and cheetahs. When you join the Rhino & Elephant project at Imire in Zimbabwe, you’re making life better for amazing animals and the human communities they share their environment with. 

The project’s mission is to ensure the long term future of Africa’s remaining rhinos, combining wildlife protection, community involvement and responsible tourism.

How will I be helping?

When you join the Rhino & Elephant project, you become part of a dedicated, passionate volunteering family. This unique wildlife conservation volunteer programme combines conservation work with rhinos, elephants and cheetah, with community projects and wildlife research.

It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to volunteer with rhinos and play an important role in the daily activities of a wildlife conservancy. Whether you’re hammering in nails or tracking rhino calves, you’re contributing to something very special.

Is volunteering with rhinos ethical?

It is indeed. Private conservancies like Imire are vital in the mission to save rhinos. The human-wildlife conflict is probably the biggest issue we face as conservationists. But you can make a difference. 

By volunteering with rhinos at Imire  you play a hands-on role protecting endangered  wildlife and contribute to a conservation success story – where communities and wildlife coexist peacefully and productively.
