KEVIN MCCANN

Age: 49

Hometown: Howick

Lucky Draw Prize:
2 days with Wildlife ACT monitoring Bearded Vulture nests in the Southern Drakensberg

Occupation:

Director – Conservation Outcomes

About Me:

Passionate conservationist, committed personally and professionally to protecting our natural environment, having spent the first decade of my professional career working with landowners across the country to secure our crane populations. My focus has always been on working with landowners across the landscape, using key iconic species, be they Rhino, vultures, Oribi or cranes, as a means to motivate and encourage people to value conservation. This has led to what I consider a significant achievement, being the establishment of a new conservation NGO together with colleagues, namely Conservation Outcomes, which focuses on securing new protected areas on private and communal land. An outdoor lifestyle has been part of my upbringing, enjoying visiting and experiencing the remote reserves of southern Africa. Mountain biking and trail running have allowed me to maintain an active lifestyle and become a great way of exploring new areas around our magnificent country.

Personal / Sporting Achievements :

- Completed 13 Cape Argus cycle tours
- Completed 3 Sani2C MTB events
- Completed the 2019 Oxpecker trail run

Reason for taking Challenge:

Conservation is not a luxury, but rather a survival imperative. In order to change the perceptions of the general public of the value of looking after our environment, specifically in changing behaviours, we need to use the plight of iconic species such as Rhino, Vultures and Cranes to highlight our impacts. Apart from the awareness generated by the Rhino Peak Challenge, I am also committed to raising much needed financial resources, enabling the continuation of the excellent work being carried out by WACT, EWT and EKZNW.
