Ivan is firmly committed to ensuring “more wildlife in healthier ecosystems”. Personally, and through the Ivan Carter Wildlife Conservation Alliance, he has garnered tremendous support for the College, which is one of four projects the Alliance supports in its endeavour to make a difference to the very front line of conservation. As an anchor donor to the College, the alliance has helped keep the College operational, especially during the last year as the Covid-19 pandemic took hold and impacted the College’s training. Personally Ivan has helped drive the success of the College’s K9 unit by hosting fundraisers in the USA and introducing the College to Joe Braman. This introduction saw the College introducing two packs of intrepid hounds from Texas to the team. This has bolstered the College’s training of free-running dogs, which has massively impacted the success of counter poaching operations in the greater Kruger.
