Program Overview:
If you love wildlife and dream of studying or working with animals, this course is for you. In Uganda, we will volunteer at the Uganda Wildlife Education Center, living on-site and assisting veterinarians and biologists and keepers in working with chimpanzees and lions, elephants and parriots, giraffes and rhinoceroses and more. You'll meet Sushi, a shoebill stork, and Charles, a four-year-old elephant. They will become your friends, as will baby chimpanzees. Local people will become friends. Then it's on safari, trekking for both chimpanzees and gorillas in the wild. Plus elephants and lions and so much more. You'll be awe-struck. All this while studying wildlife conservation issues, animal intelligence, and our relationship to the creatures with whom we share this beautiful and fragile planet. Uganda -- this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
