Kenya

Kenya Wildlife

Located on the southern Kenyan Coast, wildlife volunteers have the opportunity to assist with Colobus Monkey conservation efforts on the mainland or dolphin and marine wildlife projects on a nearby island.

Both programs provide some "on the job" training with full time program staff to get you up to speed on the species, collecting and understanding data, and conducting behavioural research.

Dolphin Conservation Program

This conservation program focuses on surveys which are conducted from a boat to collect data on dolphin populations, behavior and location. This area is home is a variety of dolphin species such as bottlenose, humpback and spinner.

Monkey Conservation Program

This program works with one of Kenya's most critical populations of Angolan black and white Colobus monkeys and help conduct biodiversity surveys in the forest on the rare Zanj elephant shrew, birds and butterflies.
