Wat je gaat doen

Be transported to the wilds of Africa from the comfort of your home. We'll meet some of the members of an African snare removal and research team and some of the animals they've dedicated their lives to saving. During this live online experience, you'll help find, catalogue and remove snares and traps used by poachers to catch and kill wildlife. We will delve into the African poaching saga and learn about what it takes to become a world-class wildlife researcher in Africa. Together we will journey to the Cradle of Human Kind in South Africa, which isn't just home to some of the oldest hominid finds in the world but also plays host to wildlife poaching in a unique, "urban" setting. From the land of our ancestors, we will travel north to a 220 000 year old meteorite crater to understand how traditional beliefs and community development can affect wildlife poaching. After clearing the snares from this geological wonder of nature, we will be whisked across the continent to the rain forests of east Africa where our team will visit with our closest "relatives". We will explore these lush, dense rainforests in search of poachers snares to make sure wildlife such as chimpanzees, elephants and leopards don't fall victim to these tools of destruction. Finally we will learn how poachers are changing their ways and turning to conservation and of some ways you can save Africa's wildlife.

As a qualified wildlife scientist and TEDx speaker, with a Masters in Nature Conservation and currently completing a PhD in Conservation Biology, I strive to bring people closer to nature and wildlife in unique and inspiring ways. Over the past 7 years I have lead hundereds of people from all over the world, through the African bush searching for poachers snares and traps. Through this snare removal project we have saved countless animals, large and small, created jobs for coumminities and exposed guests to the wonders of Africa's diverse ecosystems, from the Savannas of Southern Africa to the Rainforests of East Africa. Join me on this online adventure to meet some of Africa's most charismatic species and experience a day in the life of a wildlife scientist fighting to save Africa's wildlife from poachers!

Really interesting experience! Kailen clearly knows what he's talking about and although a tough topic, presents it in a thoughtful, empathetic way. He was open to questions and made me feel included in the experience. Enjoyed it and would recommend.

Out of 36 fantastic Airbnb Experiences, this was my absolute favorite one!! I was a bit hesitant, since I am a huge animal lover, about seeing and talking about such an upsetting topic as poaching. The pictures were very tame and the overall message was such a hopeful one. Kailen was an AMAZING host--To be able to spend time learning about his work and the difference that his organization is able to make was phenomenal. I walked away from this experience having a better understanding of poaching concerning not only the animals, but the people. Highly, highly recommended!!

It was such an interesting experience! Poaching is such a complicated issue--I learned a lot during this experience. The host, Kailen, was kind, knowledgeable, and supplied an answer to most all of my questions and is looking up another bit of information for me. I love to see people discuss something they are passionate about, and it's clear his heart and mind are in the same place!

I rated this five stars, but if I could I would have given it more! I really enjoyed this experience. I learned a lot and felt like the time flew by. Kailen made it interactive and added personal stories along the way. He also answered all my questions, of which I had a ton! I was in South Africa a year ago, and this brought up so many memories. I left the experience inspired and feeling hopeful because there are people like Kailen that are doing what they can for wildlife conservation. If you are reading this, you should sign up immediately! Thank you, Kailen!
