List Of Wildlife Schools In South Africa

Wildlife Biologists are scientists that observe and study the behaviors of animals. They frequently observe the features of certain wildlife and determine the creatures’ role in specific ecosystems and/or how they interact with human beings.

For maintaining a healthy ecological balance on this earth, animals, plants and marine species are as important as humans. But, sadly today, many of the animals and birds are getting endangered. The natural habitats of animals and plants are being destroyed for land development and farming by humans.
