Spend part of your summer break from LJMU volunteering abroad at a private game reserve in Zimbabwe. Imagine teaching lion cubs how to act in the wild, work alongside researchers analysing lions' behaviour and even act as a parent to orphaned elephants. Antelope Park offers one of the world's top wildlife release programmes, providing the perfect opportunity for Zoology, Biology, Animal Behaviour students or anyone with a real interest in animals. Over the past 40 years, the African lion population has rapidly decreased. Back in the 70s, over 200,000 lions roamed the plains but in the last 30 years there has been a population decline of 80-90%. The hands-on Lion Conservation Project forms part of the ground breaking Lion Release Programme; it's currently the only one like it anywhere in the world. You'll play a vital role in contributing to the future of the African Lion by walking lion cubs through the bush to hone their hunting skills and get them ready for the pre-release stage.
