Volunteer to Save African Wildlife
Nikela is a virtual team of volunteers. Contribute some time… get school or college credit, a letter of recommendation and hone or learn a new skill.
Some marvelous people are involved with Nikela. As a volunteer run public charity Nikela has no paid staff. Everything is accomplished via in-kind donations of time and expertise from people, like you, who live all around the world and want to do something to save Africa’s endangered and threatened wildlife.
When you donate time and your expertise to Nikela or deeply discount your professional services we let everybody know (plus you get an in-kind donation receipt, credit as a student intern or a glowing letter of recommendation.) We’d love to add your name to the list below.
Send us an email and let’s discuss how you canhelp.
