The Team

Mike Joubert


In 2012 Mike identified the serious lack of PDI's in the Wildlife Industry of South Africa. After launching a Feasibility study report Mike determined that there were even more underlying problems that kept the participation of indigenous people and indeed rural communities suppressed. Mike was determined to change the inequality, relief poverty and develop the economy for all. The long road developed a project that embraces not only one sector or individual but the total economy and its responsibility to develop its citizens and the environment all are dependant on.
