The Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust offers internships to people interested in wildlife conservation with experience in animal handling, ecology, zoology, veterinary and pre-veterinary disciplines, agriculture, laboratory diagnostics, and a range of other fields. Interns will have the opportunity to be based at the VFWT laboratory and clinic facility situated in Victoria Falls National Park, on the Wild Horizons concession. This facility is about 15 minutes from the town of Victoria Falls in a wild area below the Falls themselves.
We suggest interns apply for a slot in a five week intake. This is mutually beneficial to the project and the intern in that it allows enough time for getting involved in a project and accomplishing work on the ground as well as providing the intern with valuable experience. All projects have both field work as well as office work involved in entering data collected from the field or following up on research information.
We are now offering volunteers an opportunity to be a part of our conservation efforts by participating with our interns.
Anyone over the age of 18 is encouraged to apply to become a Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust intern. Depending on the time of year, age, experience and interest, various projects are available to each individual.
