March Madness - Introducing The THREE Projects On Sale!

March Madness - Introducing The THREE Projects On Sale!

Posted by Leanne Sturrock on 1st Mar 2017

March is set to be an exciting month for anybody looking to book a place on their first conservation project, as we are happy to announce that not one, not two, but THREE fantastic projects are now available on offer! With discounts starting at 10% off, we’re here to tell you a little more about the brilliant projects that are on sale this month.

The Great Gorilla Project – 10% Off

Gorilla

Who is this project for?: Anybody looking for a well-rounded and fascinating adventure to Uganda: the home of the mighty, noble gorilla.

What’s involved?: During their time on this award-winning project, volunteers can expect to get involved with a wide array of activities that will benefit not only the captivating wildlife at Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, but the members of the community too. On top of contributing to reforestation efforts and tree-planting work with the locals, volunteers will find that these tasks actually serve primarily as an educational tool for the children of the community, aiding their education with regards to the issues surrounding deforestation. The local schoolchildren will also accompany volunteers on a trip to Mghinga National Park, as part of an initiative to teach them about flora and fauna – a rewarding experience for all involved.

Elsewhere, volunteers can look forward to taking part in game drives, boat trips and trekking of both chimpanzees and gorillas; the latter, perhaps, being the highlight of the project. Treks can last anywhere from 45 minutes to several hours, and once a family of gorillas are reached, volunteers will spend a whole hour observing these incredible animals feeding and socialising with each other. The Great Gorilla Project is wild, exciting and uplifting; an opportunity that should not be missed.

The Great White Shark Project – 15% Off

Great White Shark

Who is this project for?: Fearless volunteers with a soft spot for the world’s most highly revered predator.

What’s involved?: This project allows volunteers to come face-to-face with what is perhaps the most feared – and even misunderstood – species on earth. Despite their gnarly exterior, sharks actually pose far less of a threat to human beings than vice versa…and as a result of this, around 11,400 sharks are killed per hour. This is a horrifying statistic, and something must be done to protect the Great White Shark species from such an overt threat. By taking part in vital field research activities (such as data collection) and assisting in correcting the negative misconceptions about sharks, volunteers will surely be making a difference to this fascinating creature – and will also be rewarded with the white-knuckle experience of cage diving alongside these animals.

The Great Orangutan And Pygmy Elephant Project – 15% Off

Orangutan and baby

Who is this project for?: Anybody looking to take a walk on the truly wild side, while doing their bit to protect some of the world’s most endangered animals.

What's involved?: The Great Orangutan And Pygmy Elephant Project offers volunteers the chance to experience the very best of Borneo’s magnificent wildlife species: monkeys, reptiles, pygmy elephants and of course orangutans can all be found in the lush rainforests, from within which this project is based. The Great Orangutan And Pygmy Elephant Project ticks all boxes when it comes to ethics and purpose, too – with a large focus on reforestation and insurmountable efforts towards protecting/reviving our rainforests, this project is quite possibly the most hands-on in terms of general rainforest care, and also has a strong focus on community outreach, which may interest some volunteers.

So, what is it to be? Head to our offers page now to select your dream trip!
