Our project is look­ing for vol­un­teers who are pas­sion­ate about wildlife con­ser­va­tion. Action For Cheetahs projects include habi­tat mon­i­tor­ing and mod­el­ing, com­mu­nity edu­ca­tion and aware­ness, and com­mu­nity devel­op­ment. Our research, edu­ca­tion and com­mu­nity pro­grammes are con­ducted in affil­i­a­tion with Cheetah Conservation Fund and Kenya Wildlife Service.

Volunteer oppor­tu­ni­ties fall under the fol­low­ing categories:

Non-academic/gen­eral vol­un­teer who is not affil­i­ated with a school or University - this can be a pro­fes­sional per­son (vet­eri­nar­ian, mar­ket­ing or edu­ca­tion pro­fes­sional, etc.) who would like a vol­un­teer expe­ri­ence or to use their skills to assist in Action For Cheetahs field work or com­mu­nity programs.

Non-thesis vol­un­teer affil­i­ated with a school or uni­ver­sity, or a recent grad­u­ate, look­ing to gain skills in spe­cific research, education/awareness or com­mu­nity development.

You qual­ify for an intern­ship if your course­work and inter­est is in:
