Desert Wildlife Reserve

Desert Wildlife Reserve

NegevIsrael (Asia)

Program description

On Monday (start date of your program) you will receive an orientation in Jerusalem that will provide you with more information about your location and tasks related to your program. There will also be a walking tour of the old city, historic sites and the open market. You will have the chance to learn about local culture and customs, meet other travelers, and get to know other program participants.

During your program you will have the opportunity to work in the scenic Arava Valley and preserve its native wildlife, educate the public about the desert and its inhabitants, as well as aid in the protection of endangered desert animal populations.

These precious natural ecosystems act as refuges for a number of Israel’s most threatened and endangered species, whilst the land is also of significant cultural importance to the local Bedouin people.

You will be working to reverse negative impacts, and help restore the local ecosystem back to its former glory. As a part of the wildlife reserve staff, you will be:

  • Preparing food and feeding animals
  • Cleaning and maintaining reserve facilities
  • Accompanying & assisting park rangers
  • Constructing enrichment facilities

This program is perfect for you if you are independent and have an interest in working with animals. It requires you to be able to cope with high temperature levels especially between the months of June and September.
