"The bad news is time flies. The good news is you're the pilot." - Michael Althsuler

I am sure I’m not alone when I say 2019 flashed by! We had yet another eventful year filled with a mix of adventure, course updates and as always, learning. As we continue to grow, we realise more and more that every day offers opportunities to learn something new. Whether we find ourselves in the field, or communicating with students via email, we have been abundantly blessed to be surrounded by like-minded individuals who share the same passion for wildlife and education as we do. All the feedback, information and knowledge shared has been of great value to us and for this we are truly grateful!

WildlifeCampus attended the Cape Wildlife Group auction in Stellenbosch

Earlier this year, The WildlifeCampus team was honoured to attend the Cape Wildlife Group (CWG) inaugural game auction in beautiful Stellenbosch, Cape Town. We gained practical insight into what it takes to set up and host a successful game auction. The auctioning and buying process takes a lot of planning. The teamwork we observed on the day was incredible. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and brought back invaluable knowledge to share with our students.

Wildlife course update: Capture, Care & Management of Wildlife

We are pleased to announce the full course-update to our Capture, Care and Management of Wildlife course. As with the case with our Wildlife Management course-update, the experiences and photographic opportunities offered to us by Hillcrest Game Estates and partners in the field, made this project possible. We would like to thank everyone involved and for allowing us to include activities at your facilities within our course content.

What to expect in 2020?

At WildlifeCampus, we have many exciting innovations to look forward to next year. It’s going to be a big year for WildlifeCampus as we will be celebrating 20 years in the wildlife industry. With that, we look forward to further course updates, new courses, a new website, as well as some epic adventures in the field. We will continue to bring you quality online education, images, videos and stories from the field, as well as actively work to contribute towards conservation – through education!

The WildlifeCampus team would like to thank you all for your support in 2019 and we cannot wait for what 2020 will bring.

If you are traveling, please stay safe on the roads. Enjoy this special season with your loved ones and take time to relax.

For the love of Nature,

The WildlifeCampus team
