ICORP Volunteer Programs

ICORP has two awesome programs on offer, where you can make a huge difference -. Wildlife and Reserve volunteer program. This is truly a hands-on wildlife experience on a large big 5 Reserve in South Africa, allowing folks to understand the dynamics of an ecosystem where large to medium herbivores roam. Here projects are undertaken with various required outcomes. Wildlife monitoring, grass analysis, and other important ecological surveys all connected to understand the bigger picture. ICORP in association with Transfrontier Africa working together for wildlife and Reserve preservation. Contact Greg Gordon directly as he is the coordinator and project management for this fantastic program – gordon_icorp@outlook.com

Then for our veterans globally we have the veteran Counter-Poaching program which is open to both men and women who have served. Military/Police forces Security, Fire brigade and ambulances services. Also, wounded veterans play a vital role in our cause on the ground. The program is well presented on our website but I have also attached it to this email. Our need especially is dog handlers as we have a K9 Karma at the moment with a second being brought in soon. Come and fly your flag for wildlife protection. Mario is our veteran volunteer coordinator, the best to contact and he will send out the required documents to be signed off and sent back.

By joining ICORP as a volunteer you will be taking a huge and positive step towards curbing the threat of species extinction. We are a charity dedicated to the conservation and protection of wildlife. It would mean a lot to me and my support group to see you join our tribe and see that you have heard our call. We cannot lead the fight against poaching without a strong and supportive base.” Marc McDonald Founder of ICORP

“I have completed two tours of duty with ICORP as a volunteer CPU Ranger; one in Mozambique and one in South Africa. My boots-on-the-ground experiences working with the ICORP CPU on operational day and night duties were amazing adventures. I will continue to serve with ICORP as a volunteer. It is imperative to protect Africa’s majestic wildlife, to keep them free to roam the bush, plains, and savannas. ICORP is family.”

If you feel you are able to spend some time assisting ICORP in the field for between 1 – 3 months then you have already ticked off a box. It’s hard, it’s hot and hands on. Ticks, serpents – Black Mamba and Mozambique spitting cobra, all the scorpions, mosquitoes and a lot of bugs and of course poaching gangs.

We are only taking up to 5 volunteers at a time. Some may overlap, but we like small groups. This is mainly for veterans, Military, Police and K9 handlers and Military medics. With a doctors certificate, health and travel insurance and some determination and common sense are welcome – this is everyone’s fight both ladies and men. We would love to have you share your skills. Our administrator will make sure you have all the relevant information. Are you really into assisting wildlife? Working alongside Rangers on the front lines? These are wild and isolated Reserve in Southern Africa. Do you have what it takes?

Candidates with a passion for wildlife conservation can take an active role in supporting our Counter Poaching Unit for a minimum of 1 month. Our program allows for 1 month, but 2 – 3 months are recommended. Our program allows each volunteer to participate in tasks alongside the CPU team.
