Description

During your stay on this volunteer project, you will contribute to our lion conservation programme that focuses on a unique approach to the ongoing protection of highly threatened African lion as well as impact lives of local communities through educational support.

Working in partnership with ALERT (African Lion and Environmental Research Trust), we support their staged lion release program which aims to release the wild offspring of captive bred lions into appropriate national parks. Here in Livingstone, we host their Release Phase where lions are released, as prides, into fenced, managed reserves where they have the opportunity to function as a wild pride. Volunteers on this project play a vital role in collecting data on these lions that are proving that the offspring born within the managed reserve are suitable candidates for release into the wild. Volunteers also play an important part in the care and upkeep of our resident lions out of the Release Phase by caring for them, feeding them and making sure they live in a clean and safe environment.

Volunteers on this project also contribute into important community work by providing literacy and numeracy support.
