Volunteer Programs - Harnas Wildlife Foundation

To enable us to reach our dreams, Harnas Wildlife Foundation has to employ the skills of many willing hands. With their constant help and support, Harnas Wildlife Foundation now boasts some local and international experts.

Our volunteer guests play a vital role in the condition of Harnas Wildlife Foundation as a whole. Some come for three weeks and some for three months, regardless, without our volunteers, Harnas Wildlife Foundation would not be what it is today.

The Harnas experience is ever changing – no two days are the same. There is always something exciting happening, whether it is with the wildlife, research, day-care centre or medical projects. As a volunteer you will be involved in all the daily activities including food preparation, feeding, caretaking, cleaning and building of enclosures, waterholes and fences, fence patrol, game counting, animal studies, helping in the children’s day care centre, research on rehabilitated animals, fear factor games, survivor games, dress up nights, bush walks as well as animal walks and star gazing.

Most of all, Harnas gives you the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the animals by providing the animals that cannot be released the best living conditions and care. We believe that all animals deserve a second chance and that they are entitled to be put back into their natural habitat where they can lead a free life without human disturbance. You can make a difference in animal conservation today by joining our volunteer programs.

Harnas Wildlife Foundation offers a once in a lifetime experience where volunteers can take part in several aspects of wildlife conservation and community enrichment. You have the possibility to join any of the Go Volunteer Programs:

Go Wildlife--Go Caretaker--Go Medical--Go Veterinary--Go Research--Go Exclusive

Each of the Harnas programs is unique. Programs may change and are always subject to the circumstances, time and safety of the moment.

Please note that Namibian law reserves the right to change and maintain the way in which people are allowed to interact with animals. Namibian Law prohibits hands on interaction with large carnivores.
