About African Son

Our aim

African Son is a private initiative which strives to promote research in aid of conservation.

We aim to assist research projects wherever facilitation and help is needed and also do our best to involve as many role-players and contributors as possible.

Our history

After qualifying as a veterinary surgeon at the University of Pretoria in 1999, Dr. Justin Benade immigrated to the United Kingdom where he worked in private practice until returning to South Africa in 2005 to further his studies as a specialist wildlife veterinarian. During this clinical training as a wildlife consultant, he became alarmed at how little we know about our African wildlife in comparison to the magnitude of conservation challenges faced on the continent today.

African Son was initiated as a vehicle for facilitating and thereby encouraging multi-faceted research to help answer questions and to make a real difference in the practical realities of wildlife conservation.

Our heart

Apart from our infatuation with research and expanding our understanding of African wildlife, we also have a passion for student education and training as the only method of assuring the continual scientific investment in that which we love, our great African wildlife heritage.
