Team Vacancies

At Lessons in Conservation we believe that each member of our team is more than just a number, you are part of the family and an important part of the organisation. 

LiC is a youth-led non-profit organisation working towards a better future for us all, majority of our funding goes directly towards educating the youth of Africa.
