"Winter is a great time for predators here in Tembe Elephant Park. As the water dries up - the prey is forced to remain near the water sources and the predators, particularly lions, also become concentrated around these areas. This has made for some fabulous sightings and great monitoring sessions for our wildlife volunteers"

Volunteer Name: Anja Bosio
Project Location: India
Program Dates: 15th of July to the 12th of August 2015
Volunteer placement: MEDICAL WORK EXPERIENCE INTERNSHIP IN MADURAI http://www.travellersworldwide.com/05-india/05-india-we-medical.htm
“I've now settled into the accommodation and my placement. It is fascinating to see patients at the hospital and interact with them and the doctors. Although I've only been there two days, I've already learnt so much.

India has not disappointed: I have not seen much so far, but I've really enjoyed visiting the Tailor's Market and now that I can find my way around to the local shops, the independence I have is fantastic. The food is superb and every day I have a new little adventure. I'm already building unforgettable memories”
Gain insight into working in a hospital in India. You'll accompany the doctors on ward rounds to see in-patients and sit in on doctor-patient consultations. You'll be assigned to a doctor or nurse who will supervise you

Great news!!!

"Anti-poaching teams can only do so much to protect rhinos. Their immediate presence can deter rogue hunters, but a lot of the slaughter happens before these teams even know that something's wrong. That's where non-profit group Protect's RAPID (Real-Time Anti-Poaching Intelligence Device) should come in handy. The system uses a blend of heart rate sensors, GPS tags and cameras drilled into one of the rhinos' horns (don't worry, it's painless) to warn conservationists when a rhino is under threat. If a rhino's heart starts racing or suddenly goes still, observers get an alert that lets them turn on the camera to see if something's wrong. Ideally, this will prevent poachers from even firing a shot -- they know that they'll likely be caught within minutes if they chase or kill a tagged animal.

Only prototypes are active right now, but there should be a wider launch by the end of 2016. Protect has grand plans for its technology, as well. It's hoping to use kinetic and solar power to keep the heart monitor running, and it hopes that versions of RAPID could protect elephants, lions, tigers and whales. Provided all goes well, endangered species wouldn't need near-constant oversight (or radical steps like removing horns) to survive"

Such a shame that we need to implement such measures. When will it ever stop?

Volunteering or taking a gap year placement in Cape Town in South Africa? Take a look at this webpage for some great ideas for a cheap lunch 
When on holiday, food and drinks can take a big chunk out of your budget – but not if you know where to eat. Without compromising on quality, we picked five Cape Town restaurants where you can enjoy lunch for less than R50.
