Soutpansberg Centre for Biodiversity and Conservation (SCBC)

Description

The Soutpaspansberg Centre for Biodiversity and Conservation was established in 2014 in order to catalogue the biodiversity of understudied animals in the Soutpansberg region of South Africa. The project initially began with a strong herpetological emphasis; soon it became apparent that it would be impossible to limit the study to a single group. Soon amphibians, small mammals, scorpions, Theraphosidae, Odonata and Lepidoptera were added to the focus of the study. The inclusion of the additional groups has not hampered the reptilian data collection as these groups are often encountered while searching for reptiles. We aim to provide an experience that will bring people into close contact with nature – uncoupled from the everyday routines of urban-based consumer culture – and to facilitate new ways of relating to the world.

We require research assistant volunteers to help us with our ongoing project:
Currently we are looking for people interested in herpetology, entomology, arachnids and small mammals. Participants need to be comfortable around reptiles, reasonably fit and happy to live without electricity (we do have solar power) and in a remote area. Data is collected through fieldwork as well as accessing existing databases and private collections/lists. Where possible fieldwork will be conducted in understudied regions to the East and north of the Soutpansberg range. The collected information will indicate biodiversity hotspots and highlight areas for the consideration of conservational action.

The information generated from this project will include species lists, distribution within the region, habitat preferences and also biological notes of observed behaviours. One of the intended outcomes of the project and the collected information is the consolidation of the information into a publication for future research reference as well as for the education of the interested public.

Research assistants who wish to partake in their own research may do so after discussing their options and drafting a proposal with our help. We are also able to take on students who need to do an internship as part of their course if we our informed upon booking.

The SCBC aims to provide an experience that will bring people into close contact with nature – uncoupled from the everyday routines of urban-based consumer culture – and to facilitate new ways of relating to the world.

Skills and Knowledge you will acquire through participation:
• Reptile and Amphibian Identification and Data Collection for Conservation
• Setting up and maintaining Pit Fall and Funnel Traps for small vertebrates and invertebrates
• Arthropod Identification and Data Collection for Conservation
• Horticulture for Conservation
• Basic Tracking
• Bird Identification and Bird Conservation Data Collection

HIMALAYAN EDUCATION LIFELINE PROGRAMME

Description

The aim of HELP is to enable young people from poor communities in the Himalayas to improve their employment opportunities through education and in so doing enhance not only their own standard of living, but also that of their extended families and of the wider communities they come from. Many Himalayan families are trapped in the cycle of poverty. Living at subsistence level, parents need the labour of their children particularly the girls, to help the family feed itself. This means that they cannot afford to release their children to attend school or college. In Nepal only 68% of all school age children are enrolled in schools, and among those who are deprived of school education, 44% are females. Even if a child can go back to school, the quality of education is often poor. The schools are so under-resourced that many do not have classrooms or trained teachers, let alone books, paper and pens. Of the children who manage to get through their schooling, very few are able to go on to higher education. The consequence of this is that many of these children do not get the education they need to achieve their full earning or social potential and so remain trapped in the impoverished existence they are born into. HELP realises its aims by enabling responsible and committed people from the developed world to sponsor young people with the potential to benefit from a school or college education but without the means to do so, make a donation to help a child or a school, and undertake short-term assignments as volunteer teachers in deprived village schools in support of their teaching programmes.
