Any person older than 18 years, who is permanently resident in South Africa, may apply for appointment as an WEF Volunteer. Those younger than 18 years may join as a Junior ENVIRO-Hero (Junior WEF Volunteers).

HOW IS A WEF VOLUNTEER APPOINTED?

The WEF focus on providing Conservation/Nature/Wildlife education and any person interested in becoming a WEF volunteer (no cost involved) will have to be passionate about nature, wildlife, the environment and its conservation and preservation through education.
Through the WEF's ENVIROcampus, potential volunteers without specific nature qualifications/knowledge have access to a wide selection of courses which are presented to help assist volunteers in developing the necessary skills to contribute towards our mission.
Once the application has been approved based on the individuals specific background, knowledge and skills, the applicant will receive a valid membership number and badge and, if needed, will be required to attend one/more of the WEF introduction courses. The new applicant also needs to remain active as a volunteer, contribute in an ethical and positive manner towards the WEF's vision & mission.

WHAT QUALIFICATIONS ARE NEEDED?

The WEF can utilise a variety of skills and most qualifications could therefore be extremely helpfull. A specific qualification in nature conservation is not necessary a prerequisite (see above) to join the WEF Volunteers, but will be an advantage. Typically, a WEF volunteer assists in the following areas: education, communication, professional services, events, media, marketing and fundraising. and other projects. The most important qualification remains enthusiasm, a positive attitude and a willingness to contribute positively towards CONSERVATION through EDUCATION - making our planet a better place for all living creatures.
