Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation
In the shadow of the majestic Drakensberg mountains, this unique conservancy is home to a lioness caught in a snare and lion confiscated from illegal lion breeders, injured raptors, poisoned vultures, Porsche the cheetah, and many more. Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre aims to contribute to the conservation of endangered species and the rehabilitation of injured and poisoned wildlife.
What will I do?
The management and staff of the centre are a group of dedicated conservationists committed to the preservation of wildlife. Their intimate knowledge of the animals they so lovingly care for is nothing less than impressive. Work can be of a reactionary nature and unpredictable.
As a volunteer at Moholoholo you will join their dedicated team and may be involved in:
- Daily husbandry and care of permanent residents at the centre
- Treatment and care of sick and injured animals
- Assistance with wildlife veterinary work
- Attending call outs to capture animals for relocation or treatment
- Involvement in breeding programmes for rare and endangered species
Work 7 days a week, with flexible time off, depending on the needs of the centre.
Cottage and house with shared bedrooms (either 2 or 4 volunteers to a
room). Each room has a shared bathroom. Shared lounge/living area with a kitchen.
