What's the project about?

The wildlife centre is Malawi’s only animal sanctuary, with a focus on rescue and rehabilitation. Working alongside a resident team of expert wildlife vets, participants on the veterinary internship have a unique opportunity to gain work experience in animal care and nursing and learn  new skills from qualified local staff. Animal care work will encompass the whole rehabilitation spectrum, from rescue, examination, ongoing supervision and final release.

How will I be contributing?

Veterinary interns assist the on-site veterinarian when any clinical work arises, including incoming examinations of new arrivals, treatment of minor trauma, ongoing health checks and routine diagnostics. Get to grips with the wild side of veterinary science as you assist with the treatment of some unusual wild animals! Interns will also join sanctuary volunteers with general animal husbandry duties and animal reintegrations.

What makes this project ethical?

Join an organisation internationally recognised for its work to protect Malawi’s wildlife. Then sanctuary is focused on wildlife rescue and rehabilitation, and is widely reputed to be one of the best facilities in Africa for responsible wildlife care and rehabilitation. You can be confident that your veterinary internship is part of an ethical, high impact project, where you will learn best practice from highly qualified conservation and veterinary experts.
