Meet our People

Founded on Linda Tucker’s pioneering cultural heritage work dating back to 1991, and Jason A. Turner’s groundbreaking scientific methodology, our personnel are LionHearted, dedicated, multi-skilled and multi-cultural.

Our Trustees and Advisory Board comprise a broad scope of international authorities, scientific representation, traditional leaders at a local, national and international level, celebrities such as Jerome Flynn, as well as parliamentarians and benefactors. Our Advisors include King Holomisa, Member of Parliament and long-standing President of CONTRALESA (Council of Traditional Leadership of South Africa, now retired); Princess Kabelo Chiloani of the Royal House of the Sepedi people; Reverend Mpho Tutu, CEO of the Desmond and Leah Tutu Foundation; Sheryl Leach (creator of Barney the Purple Dinosaur); and Jenny Booth (CEO of Maitland Financial Services, CT).

World conservation legend, Dr Ian Player, served as Patron on the White Lion Trust for the last years of his life, and his mentorship is carried on in all important aspects of our project. Click here to read Linda’s tribute to a great man.
