Record number of interns at UmPhafa in 2018!
We have seen a record number of 92 interns visiting the reserve this year!
We welcomed 39 students from Essex University, Writtle University College and East Coast College, with the remaining 53 made up of interns visiting the reserve for placements of between 2 weeks and 12 weeks.
We would like to thank everyone who came and helped on the reserve throughout 2018. The work interns undertake is an invaluable contribution to the conservation on the reserve, and gives interns the chance to learn new skills by helping with various tasks and projects, such as tracking our animals through the bush for behavioural observations, constructing fire breaks, camera trapping and various surveys.
Our 4-12 week internships are available all year round.
2 week internships are available 9th – 23rd January, 6th-20th March and 6th-20th November 2019.
