Bursaries for Nature Conservation SA


Nature Conservation is all about protecting our earth.  Students will learn about caring for all animals, the natural environment and how to protect it.  Conservationists are constantly working in the field surrounded by nature and animals, tracking them, transporting them and caring for the injured or ill.  There are a couple of bursaries awarded yearly to South African students to provide skilled workers in a scarce field.
