Education and Outreach

Meerkat_weighing_01Projects based at the KRC provide opportunities for interns to work at the site for a year, gaining experience in field research, analyses and the organisation of programs. Over 200 interns have now spent a year with us. We maintain links with local schools and provide opportunities for visits as well as field courses for universities.

Around 15 master’s students or PhD students and 10 postdoctoral scientists current work at the site with intermittent visit from Principal Investigators from different universities. Since 2001, over 40 PhD and masters students have completed their projects with us.

The KRC regularly hosts film teams. Many recent television programs involving meerkats, babblers and drongos have been filmed here, including all of the long-running Meerkat Manor series.
