No specific qualifications are required, but we look at the following points for candidate suitability:
• Interest/field of study: conservation, environmental science, wildlife management, ecology or wildlife biology, wildlife journalism, wildlife photography, veterinary science, animal behavior studies, animal communication, cultural/community development, or fields related to the aforementioned.
• Flexibility and adaptability.
• Self-Sufficiency: as a member of the research team the volunteer/intern is expected to prepare meals and is responsible for his/her own “house-keeping”.
• Self-motivated: although a structured program is provided for the week, volunteers need to be independent and mature enough to personally utilize any free time.
