Bat Research Assistant – Malawi

Organisation: African Bat Conservation

Reference: ABC
Location: Liwonde National Park, Malawi
Hours: Full Time
Position type: Volunteer
Contract: Temporary

Volunteer with African Bat Conservation in the heart of Liwonde National Park Malawi.
African Bat Conservation (ABC) is a non-profit conservation project based in Malawi, created in partnership with the University of Bristol, UK. Malawi has been highlighted by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as of key importance to bat conservation in Africa, having high endemism and species diversity. However, it has been highlighted as an area of concern for bat populations due to increasing agricultural pressures on the environment, and high levels of deforestation.

We need as much help as we can get to make a difference for bats and biodiversity in Africa, we are a small team with a big task ahead. Volunteers can play a vital role in helping us to achieve our aims. In return it is our hope that volunteers will enjoy volunteering with us, meet like-minded people and develop some new skills.

Volunteering with us gives you an unique opportunity to work in a remote unspoilt African wilderness with very few visitors, untouched by mass tourism as found in Kenya and Tanzania. The ABC research camp is located at Mvuu camp, a Central African Wilderness Safaris Lodge on the banks of the mighty Shire river. Living in camp you will be on permanent safari, with regular visits to camp by elephants, hippos, warthogs and monkey. Our “office” is an African paradise.

Volunteers are an important part of ABC and we hope to give everyone a fun and rewarding experience. Whatever your background, there is plenty you can contribute with a range of activities to match your interests and abilities. Our volunteers undertake a range of bat and biodiversity surveying and monitoring activities (including harp trapping, mist netting and roost surveys), as well as community education and awareness activities.
