South Africa Semester Abroad

SUPPORT OUR TEAM!

We are a team of 10 dedicated Ecosystem Management students from the School for Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences at Sir Sandford Fleming College. We have competed and been selected for the opportunity to travel to the Limpopo province in South Africa to participate in a semester abroad with the Askari Wilderness Conservation Programme beginning in January of 2019.

Askari works with volunteers from around the world, to conserve and manage 12,500 hectares of protected habitat and wildlife. During our time on the reserve, we will be participating in habitat restoration, herbivore and predator monitoring, rare species breeding programs, and other management activities. We hope, like the dedicated team of staff and volunteers at Askari, that our efforts will assist in and contribute to the restoration of habitat and the unique wildlife that it supports.

We have found our passion within this program and believe that the ability to combine our devotion for the environment with an amazing opportunity through the Askari Wilderness Conservation Program, will not only fuel our passion for environmental work, but will also provide us with the opportunity to gain valuable, transferable skills, and contribute to good science in the process.

We are asking you to believe in the positive change we as a team can create and invest whatever dollar amount you can contribute.
