Wildlife Conservation Camps
Finding volunteer positions at an ethical wildlife sanctuary
SAFE WORLDWIDE sponsored a Wildlife Conservation Camp for 200 Ugandan students in the Mgahinga Mountain area near Kisoro, Uganda, where the critically endangered mountain gorillas live. The camp was help from April 18 thru 22nd, 2022.
In partnership with local NGO MUSAA, the weeklong event seeks to improve conservation practices and community awareness towards wildlife and environment conservation, under the theme: “Gifted by Nature, Conserve Wildlife”.
The camp is a step in improving community awareness about the benefits of wildlife conservation and having income alternatives to the bushmeat trade and poaching of wildlife.

With the support of local rangers and regional leaders, we teach about local wildlife and how to protect and respect their flora and fauna.
Encouraging young people to use their voices and empowering them to feel safe to do the right thing and speak out against poaching.
We do a tree planting event and a clean up afternoon, teaching about sustainability and becoming good stewards of the planet.
Create change, provide hope
Whether it’s in our local neighborhood or whether it’s half way around the world, we are available to speak in schools or local communities to provide educational and entertaining information on why it’s important to save wildlife and how each one of them can do their part to help animals in their area.
Thru education and actual experience with wildlife, children learn to love and respect their endemic wildlife. And that helps to save wildlife against poaching and the bush meat trade.
