Thank you GreatJohn,

I take it you have been to Tanzania? Would Serengeti happen to be one of the best Reserves?

You and me both. I wish I could work with the elephants or rhinos. I am endlessly fascinated with elephants especially. And I do hope you and your husband go to Africa someday !

There looks to be many opportunities to volunteer in Africa, some are the pay to volunteer type.

This group in Tanzania does good work, I'll bet they would like some help.
Tanzania Animals Protection Organization (TAPO)

There are some unique and interesting wild life rescue volunteer opportunities here in the states as well. So you don't need to wait to be a help to the animals.

It's in Africa, I don't think anyone thought it was a rich country so that is hardly breaking news. It is still a very beautiful country. Kilimanjaro and the Serengeti, most people don't even know what country they are in. If one only listens to the brief stories the main stream media pumps out one can miss a lot of whats really going on in the world.

2012 Ranking (from richest to poorest) for Gross domestic product based on purchasing-power-parity (PPP) per capita, in Global Finance Magazine.com.

Tanzania was ranked 156, The Philippines at 123, The UK at 23, Japan 24, The USA, 7th, Qatar, number 1, AU 13, Canada 14th, Norway 4th, Russia 55, Mexico 60, Poland 44, Brazil 76, South Africa 79, Namibia 101, Angola 107, Ghana 138, Nigeria 138, Niger 175, Uganda 162, Swaziland 117, Kenya 162, China 92, DRC, was last at 181.

On this list they do not make the top 20.
