EXPEDITION SUMMARY

This African wildlife conservation project will take you to the world-famous Maasai Mara, one of the natural wonders of the world, where you will monitor and defend its biodiversity. Species to be monitored include the “Big Five” of leopard, lion, elephant, buffalo and rhinoceros, as well as cheetah, wild dog and a host of ungulates such as giraffe, zebra, eland, impala, wildebeest, as well as other flagship African species. You will be working as part of an international team, based at a very comfortable field research camp with all modern amenities. You will be covering ground in off-road vehicles and on foot and conducting research activities such as camera trapping, target species searches, transect and species identification work, as well as data entry. All this in an effort to ascertain population diversity and abundance, and to work with local people on defending this iconic African landscape from encroachment, poaching and destruction.
