Join Us


WEI is dependent upon the hard work of students and volunteers. Without this support, WEI simply couldn't exist! In return these volunteers and students get the opportunity to learn from top South African Field Guides, get hands-on conservation experience, and have a once-in-a-lifetime adventure in some of the wildest places on earth. If you would like the opportunity to get involved in our programmes then please get in touch either by emailing us direct at or by contacting our great travel partners at WTSA!

Masters Programme

WEI also offer a Research Masters programme with our partners Operation Wallacea and Oxford Brookes University in the UK. For more information please click HERE. Students with a good undergraduate degree are asked to complete a booking form and email it to


We are always looking for energetic and highly skilled staff to join our team. If you are a qualified Field Guide or Trails Guide and would like to work on vital conservation research programmes then please contact us.

We also have paid lecturing placements for knowledgeable and inspiring post-graduate students and academics. If you want to spend anything from a week to three months teaching students in the World's most beautiful classroom then please drop us a line!
