A Word about Volunteers

Intern at MKWC

We are honored to get so many offers of help by volunteering. Unfortunately we can only accept voluntary work from student interns from Kenyan institutions such as local Universities.

The Kenya Government policy is very clear here, there are no permits issued for foreign volunteers. The Conservancy usually accommodates Kenyan volunteer interns as much as that is possible.

You can usually find an intern working alongside our experienced keepers at the Orphanage or out in the field.

Many of our volunteer interns move on to jobs in related fields after graduation. Their work at the Conservancy creates a lifelong respect for wildlife and the environment. Most remain our life long supporters.
