Grab a chance to work for the Mauritian Wildlife Foundation (MWF) and discover the beautiful fauna and flora of the country. 

THERE ARE NO VACANCIES AT THE MOMENT FOR PERSONS WHO ARE NOT RESIDING IN MAURITIUS
Mauritius has opened the borders as from 1st October 2020 but with conditions. There are limited flights and all arrivals spend 14 days in quarantine at an allocated hotel and pay for this as well as medical expenses. This costs around Rs 50,000 – Rs 60,000 (US$ / UKP / Euros +1,000). Applications for work or volunteer visas are not being accepted currently and when this does happen we anticipate the processing will take a few months. We have recruited a number of staff, interns and volunteers who will have priority when we are able to apply for visas. We will re-open our recruitment to overseas candidates when processes become clearer and conditions for entry to Mauritius have been confirmed and are operational. We will put a notice up on this website page and also announce it on the MWF Facebook.
