In South Africa, there are hundreds if not thousands of nature reserves and game farms, each with its own purpose. These farms all need certain work to be done in order to maintain the natural habitat and to ensure that the ecological features are looked after. Tourists, all flock to these natural habitats to relax and take a break from the busy life of the city.
Being a field ranger allows the individual to enter the world of conservation. Although this is a hands on course, the classes will be provided online and the student can study in their own time at their own pace. Due to the many practical activities to be completed, we recommend that students volunteer at any of the organizations mentioned above to gain the experience and to complete the skills programme.
Online support and guidance will be available and students can request to obtain their workplace exposure at Sondela Nature Reserve & Spa for a limited time.
