Volunteer Opportunity: Primate Work in Africa
Founded in 1991, the Drill Rehabilitation & Breeding
Center – Cross River State, Nigeria (DRBC) maintains
over 70% of the world’s captive drill population (175
drills) in natural-sized reproductive groups of wild-born founders and captive-bred offspring. Emphasis is on conservation and technical aspects of group formation, veterinary health, breeding, and preparation for release to the wild. Most animals live at a field site in multi-hectare, electrified enclosures of natural habitat. An urban facility serves as quarantine and project HQ. The project is actively involved in an in situ conservation program at the field site, and works with government, communities, and other NGOs to promote endangered species protection nationally. The DRBC also maintains 22 non-breeding chimpanzees. Expatriate staff work as technical advisors in support of national staff on animal husbandry, and share responsibility with Nigerian management for daily operations, facility/equipment maintenance and improvement, administration, some veterinary care, and some community and government liaison activities. In-country expenses, housing and meals are provided. Minimum time commitment is one year; subsidized assistance may not be available to volunteers for lesser periods of time. The following skills and experience are considered
valuable: • Animal husbandry, veterinary and/or medical experience • Practical and mechanical skills (construction, automotive, electrical, etc.) • Appropriate educational background • Developing country experience • Administration, management, fund-raising, PR and good writing skills • Conservation or development work, particularly in Africa. These positions are very demanding, requiring determination and genuine commitment to African wildlife conservation. They may be ideal for a couple with a balance of the above skills. Applicants must be at least 25 years old, be willing to shoulder tremendous responsibility and take direction, while having the ability to make decisions independently as needed. Daily routines include long hours of often mundane work.
