I am planning on doing 4 week internship with GVI in Limpopo, South Africa to help aid in the conservation of African wildlife. The internship allows me to get hands on and help the long term of some beautiful wildlife, biodiversities and ecosystems.

Hey! 

I'm Megan Macpherson, A 3rd Year Biological Science student, in hope of going into a career involving the coservation/rehabilitation of wildlife.

Because of this I am planning on doing a 4 week wildlife conservation internship with GVI in Limpopo South Africa. This internship allows me to get hands on and directly help in the long term conservation of south african wildlife, biodiversity & their ecosystem. The wildlife included vary from Big cats, Elephants and Hyenas to Birds of Prey and allows me to gain high quality experience to go on and continue to work in this field to help conserve some of our beautiful wildlife. The project includes the studying and tracking of animals as well as increasing both local and global knowledge of how important these animals really are to us and the threats that they are currently facing in the wild.

GVI spends up to 12 hours a day collecting data on large predators such as lions, leopards and cheetah. The information gathered is used to give an accurate picture of the predators’ impact on prey populations, determine social structure, genetics, and spatial movement. This vital information helps maintain a healthy balance of these natural resources and ultimately conserve some of Africa’s most important ecosystems.

If you would like to help me in this amazing experience of a lifetime, I would appreciate any sort of donation to help fundraise this trip. 

All money I am raising goes towards funding towards supporting and field operations to help keep the project running.
