Over 1,500 snares were removed from the natural bushveld last year by our committed conservation volunteers in Botswana. Snares are set as traps by poachers to catch antelope for meat, and are a danger to all wildlife, often causing serious injury and death.
Spring Break is around the corner and there is still time to sign up for an Alternative Spring Break volunteer trip abroad. Do something worthwhile and adventurous during your week off, while giving back where needed most. You can choose a project in child care, building, conservation, medicine, and international development, in countries like Mexico, Belize, Jamaica, Ghana, Fiji, and more.
