Our next Snare Patrol Eco Volunteer Program is planned for the month of June in the Western Cape of South Africa.  Space is limited on these programs, but they are a regular occurrence. These programs are more for the adventurous and outdoorsy folks. It is definitely not a luxury lodge stay EcoTour like our other programs. This is for the people who want to get hands on experience under the training and guidance of our rangers.

Global Conservation Force is excited to announce that we are offering training and volunteer opportunities with some of our snare patrol zones. Each program is setup for 7 – 10 days of coverage within an ongoing project area. These training and volunteer programs are not sold independently at a lodge or reserve. They have been custom created, curated, and scheduled to overlap one or more of the GCF areas of conservation and wildlife protection zones. Volunteers are guaranteed to see a wide variety of habitat, landscapes, and get to see some local tourist sites while joining our team for these programs.

This program is not a leisurely or luxury accommodation and photo safari tour. This volunteer program is more for the adventurous and active lifestyle group of people. If you are looking for those GCF EcoTour please see our EcoTour application.

Snares are silent killers for wildlife around the world. The cheap and easily design and application makes this method of poaching very common. Snares can stay active in an environment for a very long time, which is why it takes consistent sweeps and patrols to remove and reduce the negative impact for wildlife.
