A formidable force within anti-poaching circles with the use of his K9s, Carl’s love affair with the bush started at a very young age, where he found himself occupied with protecting the wildlife on their family farm in Vaalwater. With his passion for Africa and K9s, it only made sense to combine the two together and what has come of that, is a team of highly dedicated individuals who share in his passion for the protection of all species.
With Carl’s expertise, experience, and several years in the field of working K9s and anti-poaching, he has been called upon by various Government authorities for assistance in human scent tracking and intelligence where strong working relationships have been formed with SAPS, Nature Conservation, Green Scorpions and National Intelligence. Carl’s belief in finding solutions to problems and ‘out-the-box’ thinking, he constantly applies action towards his work which provides successful outcomes.
Carl has a natural ability for public speaking and it has seen him portraying the conservation message on a global scale, with invitations to speak at a variety of events in Australia, USA, and the UK. With a love for children, many of these engagements take place at schools where an interactive presentation is given. Back home, Carl has been called upon by various media and news platforms for comment and statement on a variety of the conservation challenges we are faced with.
