Program Description:
In South Africa, wildlife management is privatized.  Wildlife are frequently bought and sold, requiring intensive hands-on management.  There is no place in the U.S. or in most African countries where students can experience and learn techniques of wildlife capture at the rate and intensity of the experience in South Africa.  Additionally, South Africa has good transportation, communication and medical infrastructure, and most educated people speak English.  This is the single best course a student can take to prepare them for veterinary professional schools or zoo work with wild, exotic animals.
