About

From a very young age, I lived and played in the African bush, enjoying the natural wonders provided by nature. My passion for nature in later life has forged a career in preserving wildlife, teaching our youth in the abundant wealth of nature and conserving a vanishing way of Life. Our natural wonders are disappearing through global warming and insatiable demand for wildlife products which I intend to halt through awareness.

For over a decade I have been involved in a private park restoration in Southern Africa and recently started consulting in West Africa. Our knowledge and passion has been conveyed to thousands of youth in schools through community conservation awareness. This work created a much needed fund raising drive for an NGO with the aid of the corporate social investment portfolios which spells out the slogan “Stop Wildlife Crime”.

Wildlife Trafficking

Wildlife trafficking has become the fourth largest illegal trade in the world after drugs, weapons and humans. Never before, have our oceans, forests and wild places been plundered by human greed in exploitation of this natural commodity.

Our schools Rhino Education is a passive proactive programme used to create awareness through demand reduction. Project Rhino KZN have been supported in Vietnam by the Freeland Foundation and the US Embassy in Hanoi in a successful student exchange programme. Since my work has involved South East Asia, I have uncovered and learnt about the dark underworld of our endangered species being traded and utilized in all illicit forms.

Trafficking involves, many formats like, traditional medicines, the exotic pet trade, jewellery , ornaments and trade routes via harbours and airports and the contraband is always pushing the law to new and unsuspected heights. My journey explains the facts to the public, corporate companies, and non-profit organizations to solicit much needed fundraising to prevent such action.

The USA Trade in Wildlife has prioritized to fight trafficking and global Corporates like Google, Ebay and MSC Cruise Lines to name but a few are injecting millions into to campaigns.
