Veterans for Wildlife are extremely pleased to confirm the appointment of Major Genreal (Retd.) Johan Jooste to the Board of Trustees of our South African operations.

General Johan Jooste served for a total of 35 years in the South African Defense Force (SADF), and he is now the Head of Special Projects for South African National Parks (SANParks). Amongst other responsibilities, General Jooste leads the team responsible for protecting over 40% of the world's rhino. He is arguably one of the world's most qualified and experienced voices when it comes to the prevention of wildlife crime and conservation matters in Southern Africa.

The entire Veterans for Wildlife team is very much looking forward to working with and learning from General Jooste, as we continue to play our part in securing Africa's threatened and endangered species. With the General's direction and leadership, Veterans for Wildlife will continue to go from strength to strength.

Able and ready to serve our cause in a time in history when the odds are stacked against conservation and facing real challenges for the enforcement of law in our protected areas. All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. For the rhino.

Maj. Gen. (Retd.) Johan Jooste
