Earthwatch Scavengers of South Africa
This project was established 10 years ago and to date has hosted 50 successful teams, with volunteers from 20 different countries. The Key Species which are studied and Monitored are the Brown Hyena, Black Backed Jackal, dung beetles and vultures. Volunteers are privileged to work in the Pilanesberg National Park at night which allows them to possibly spot the rare nocturnal species often missed by tourists. The volunteers are also very involved in the management of Mankwe and are exposed to all aspects of wildlife management, many of these activities are on foot which enables the volunteers to appreciate the smaller beauties of the bush. The Earthwatch teams are accommodated at Waterbuck Camp.
