October Student – Introduction

Student Programme

Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre (HESC) offers people between the ages of 18 and 35 years the opportunity to experience the Centre in an intensive and hands-on 21-day programme.

It is divided into three main sections: Participation, Conservation and Sight Seeing.

The main focus of the programme is on the cheetah, and throughout their stay participants are involved in the everyday care of these magnificent animals. This includes cleaning, feeding, and where required, assisting with or observing any veterinary activities that may occur during their stay. These same activities also apply to other species being cared for at the Centre. Click here to read more.

New Intake: 11th – 31st October 2011

A warm welcome to Caroline, who joined us on Tuesday for the full three week programme. She might not have any fellow participants, but I have it on good authority that the HESC staff are a nice bunch! She’s certainly picked a lovely time of year to visit too. With summer having recently arrived, the days will be hot, but not unbearably so. Let’s hope she’s brought her camera along, so that we can share in the many adventures she’s sure to have.
