Indlovu Aerial Trust
Indlovu Aerial Trust is a registered South African non-profit organisation (NPO No. IT000118/2018(N)) focusing on conservation and eco-commerce projects.
PELAFORCE™ and Indlovu Aerial Trust have partnered closely on the development of sustainable and equitable supply chains for wild-harvested raw materials in southern Africa including baobab fruit from Mozambique, marula nut from eSwatini and Pelargonium root from Lesotho.
The Indlovu Aerial Trust approach to conservation through community development was seeded while operating in Zimbabwe's Hwange National Park as part of a WWF-funded, drone assisted anti-poaching and human-wildlife conflict initiative.
The PELAFORCE™ strategy team is determined to make a tangible difference to the lives of rural communities and the wildlife they share the African wilderness with. Learning from the successes and failures of previous anti-poaching, conservation and community development projects, Quin Clark, Dane Poulsen, Caitlin Gilfillan and Ché-Lee Parker set out to develop, promote and deliver a sustainable business strategy that would directly benefit wildlife conservation and the concurrent livelihoods of rural African communities, while providing economic opportunities to rural communities.
While sharing a common passion for Africa's people and wildlife, each team member brings a unique set of skills and personal accomplishments to the programme. The team's diverse cultural, academic and professional backgrounds, in addition to individual experience and capability, have culminated in a talented and capable group with the range of skills necessary to make this programme both effective and successful.
