Africa Nature accepts volunteers for the ages of 18 years and above. There are no specific requirements in terms of education and experience, but their absorption into the volunteer programme will heavily depend on the need, specific skills required and number of applicants.  The duration for volunteering is between 1 week and 3 months.

A support letter from a recognized academic institution is a requirement. The duration for internship is not more than 3 months.
