Volunteer in the conservation of endangered primates in Ghana

Gap Year, conservation, primates, Africa

Cages set up in wooded natural area, away from traffic and human habitation


Volunteering in the conservation of endangered primates in Ghana, is a wonderful opportunity to get some hands-on experience in the field for any students of zoology or animal conservation or those who have an interest in the subject.

This project is set in a wooded, natural area on the outskirts of Accra where the monkeys feel that they are very much part of the bush with all the sounds and smells that go with it!

You can help in the daily care of these rescued monkeys keeping their enclosures clean, providing them with play areas, monitoring their health and following the breeding program which may involve swapping monkeys with other projects within Ghana, Africa or even Europe!

Watch this video for a full description of the project:


Working hours are from 9am until 2pm and volunteers will need to get a return taxi from the volunteer house with an estimated cost of £10 per day.  They could also travel on the local buses and the estimated cost of that is £3 per day.  If more than 2 volunteers are going to the same place, then the taxi might be the best option and quicker too.
