Volunteers
The work will involve the uprooting of lantana camara an alien invasive species prevalent in the
Victoria Falls World Heritage Site destroying vegetation and biodiversity: Lantana Camara is an
Invasive Alien Plant rated as one of the world’s top ten worst weeds. Lantana Camara is
displacing the native vegetation within the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural
Organization (UNESCO) Victoria Falls World Heritage Site and its buffer zone and also threaten
the stability and visual appearance of the gorge walls. The ecological collapse of invaded
conservation areas is now a very real threat.
This is a must do program for the international volunteer who wish to help protect the
environment in a constructive and positive manner and to help the local children and youth
achieve their environmental future goals.  International volunteers are unlikely to find a more
amazing location than this to help make a difference.  The program requires a willing workforce
of volunteers on the ground to help and facilitate the wonderful activities it offers. Volunteers
will also be involved in the maintenance of infrastructure such as roads and picnic sites in the
Zambezi National Park. Furthermore, volunteers will embark on research to establish non-
chemical and sustainable ways to eliminate the alien invasive species without destroying the
natural vegetation. They will create social media platforms to attract interested parties to
contribute to ideas in winning the battle against alien invasive species.
Accommodation: Volunteers will be accommodated at the volunteer guest house which is
located approximately 4kms from the city centre. Internet facilities are provided free of charge
for volunteers 24hrs a day. However, it should be noted that this may be regulated or restricted in
some instances depending on the daily usage but would generally be available all the time.
