Our tracker graduates undergo an intensive one-year training course which prepares them for employment in the eco-tourism, animal monitoring and wildlife protection sectors of the conservation industry. Since 2010, some 91% of our graduates have found permanent employment. Tracker Academy’s training program is accredited by CATHSSETA and endorsed by FGASA.
