Advanced Certificate in Nature Conservation: Transfrontier Conservation Management
Passionate Field Ranger working towards a Diploma in Nature Conservation.
“After completing this course, I look forward to taking on new responsibilities at work and hope to be promoted to a senior position. This qualification will allow me to lead my community to working with the municipality to conserve our environment.”
Field Ranger, Alex Nkosi, continues to pursue academic and occupational qualifications and is currently enrolled in his second course at the Southern African Wildlife College. In 2015, he graduated with a National Certificate in Natural Resource Management: Terrestrial, and prior to that he achieved a Diploma in Travel and Retail from MSC College.
Throughout his disciplined journey in tertiary education, Alex has worked as a Field Ranger for provincial parks. Over 10 years, he has gained experience at Songimvelo Nature Reserve where he is dedicated to monitoring and protecting South Africa’s endangered species. His work on the front line has equipped him with practical skills and first-hand experience in the field of anti-poaching and law enforcement.
Completing his Advanced Certificate in Nature Conservation will award him with a hard-earned Diploma and contribute significantly towards his goal of addressing issues of poaching, pollution, and climate change in his community.
Alex requires support towards the R75 000 needed for his bursary. This is an amount that he does not have access to personally, which is why the SAWC as a non-profit organisation is calling upon a network of donors and supporters to help raise these funds. By donating any amount, large or small, you are playing a crucial role in helping Alex receive the best possible training for his career in conservation.
