VOLUNTEER PROGRAM

Protrack Anti-Poaching Unit 8 Week Volunteer Program

Why are you classified as a volunteer?

Due to the security regulations of SA, if a person does not obtain a valid SA ID even if he is from a neighboring country such as Namibia or any other African country as well as Europe and the rest of the world, he may not work in the field and earn a salary or operate a weapon while on duty. This is simply the law and due to Protrack being a Private company we have to answer to the law.

What are the differences between a Volunteer and a Permanent recruit?

First of all by law we cannot employ you, pay you a salary or charge for your services while in the field and on duty, as that would be ethically wrong for our clients.

However you will be treated no differently to any other employee and can be dismissed at anytime if contract and rules and regulations are broken. After training is completed you will join and assist our 2 man teams as a a third pair of eyes and ears in the field. You will conduct patrols and work and live in the bush for 16 days at a time.

Protracks’ responsibility is to ensure that once a volunteer has completed their service in the field that they understand the reality of what a game guard needs to sacrifice in order to protect Africa’s wildlife.  The volunteer also has a duty to share his culture and learn from others regarding theirs.  It is hoped that the volunteer develops a deep bond with Africa, its people and natural heritage so that he may become an ambassador and motivate others to be guardians of wildlife.  It is also the duty of the volunteer to share his newly gained knowledge accurately to those aboard that are unaware of the reality of what poaching and anti-poaching entails.
