Influential People - Pledges

BRENT COVERDALE

Age: 43

Hometown: Howick

Lucky Draw Prize:
A two-night stay at Giants Castle with a day in the Vulture Hide.

Occupation:

Animal Scientist: Mammals and Birds

About Me:

I grew up in Johannesburg but the adage – you cannot be held accountable for the sins of your parents is so true, and have loved calling KZN my home for last 18 years.
Currently employed as an Animal Scientist with Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife, focusing on large mammals and bird species, I am acutely aware of our impact on our natural heritage and thus passionate about encouraging an environmental ethos which aims to conserve and protect all facets of biodiversity.
The biggest challenge is the Me, myself and I mantra – getting ahead no matter what the cost and defining our value by what we have and not who we are - conservation action starts with social change.

Personal / Sporting Achievements :

- Marrying an awesome wife
- Producing three wonderful Children
- Three Comrades Marathon’s, finishing 2018 in 10h33
- Completing the other two KZN mega’s – the Duzi Canoe marathon and the Midmar Mile

Reason for taking Challenge:

Vulture Conservation needs support. You cannot define a property to protect these iconic species. The Critically Endangered Bearded Vulture faces extinction if we do not step up our game. The Biodiversity Management Plan for the species has clear actions to ensure its survival, all of which require funding and support.
