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.

Is this volunteer project ethical?

It is indeed. Private conservancies like Imire are vital in helping endangered species survive and thrive. The human-wildlife conflict is probably the biggest issue we face as conservationists. But you can make a difference. 
By volunteering at Imire you play a hands-on role protecting threatened wildlife and contribute to a conservation success story – where communities and wildlife coexist peacefully and productively.
