Internship in The Greater Kruger National park, South Africa

We are currently selecting interns to assist with field research. Successful applicants can expect to assist on a variety of studies including predator /prey dynamics, elephant identification and herd dynamics, lion pride dynamics, vegetation surveys, animal census counts and daily location and observation of a variety of radio collared animals.
Research is based out of our rustic bush camp that is deep inside a Big 5 area that is part of the Greater Kruger National Park in South Africa.
This is a unique project as our head researcher is also the Warden of the area and so along with conducting on going research to directly effect management decisions on the reserve, the project is also responsible for the ecological management of the area. Interns will directly assist the Warden and his team.
Interns should expect to be out in the field daily, and then assisting with data input in our grass roofed open air office in the evening, while dinner is prepared around the fire.
We are looking for hard working, dedicated, adaptable people who are working towards or have a degree in the natural sciences.
Internships last a minimum of one month, and can last up to six months. Interns are accommodated in raised wooden chalets at our camp/ research station. More information is available on our website www.indlovuwest.com
Please make sure to review the intern portion of our website before you apply. It is the full responsibility of the intern to make their travel arrangements, our staff will pick up interns at Eastgate Airport in Hoedspruit.

Please send a brief resume and cover letter to john@indlovuwest.com to apply for the internship.
Include your available dates to join the project along with your desired length of stay.
