"If you're looking for sombody to give you an entry into the world of volunteering then I strongly recommend Global Guardians. Experienced people who know what it takes to make a difference and who have no qualms in offering advice and getting you to where you can either learn or put your skills to use. I was able to access valuable training with their help. Consummately professional."
"If you’re looking to start working or volunteering in Anti Poaching, Global Guardians is the place to start. Dustin has been great, helping me every step of the way and answering all my questions with the most detail."
"Very professional, helpful and proficient, I was very impressed by the service and the ability of Dustin to answer all my questions about the course I applied for."
"Having recently completed the Pathfinder Level 1 course, I was lucky enough to meet Dustin and personally experience his passion and dedication for Wildlife Protection. Here's a wholesomely modest good guy who genuinely interests himself with the people involved - before and even after the courses have transformed you. His first-hand knowledge of the program itself as well as the industry makes him the best available guide/advisor, heck even mentor at times. Highly commendable - as a human as well as an agent. Thanks for everything Dustin!"
"Whether it be walking elephants by sunset, or feeding endangered rhinos, the programme delivered beyond expectations. Thank-you to all staff and the family at Imire for a wonderful experience and ongoing support of African wildlife!"
"Absolutely amazing! I had the opportunity to volunteer here for one week and had the best time of my life. Planning on coming back in October! Everyone was so friendly and helpful and the bond and love between the Rangers and animals is astonishing! The work that is put into this conservation site and the dedication from the Rangers and their staff is beautiful! Can't wait to come and volunteer again!" Imire Conservancy, Zimbabwe
"Me and my friend have been treated with such kindness, professionalism and an obvious will to help out, that you very seldom see today. Dustin truly cares and want's you to have a great experience and what ever the problem is, he will not only have the greatest of patience he will make sure everything falls into place. I am sure I speak both for me and my friend, when I say we have nothing but the best to say about Dustin and Global Guardians Conservation Fund. Very highly recommended."
