Toby’s passion for wildlife conservation and boundless enthusiasm for technology-driven marketing has led him to found Pangolin.Africa which aims to make a significant impact on the survival of this amazing animal across the continent.
Sadicka obtained a degree in Cost and Management Accounting at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology and is currently in the process of obtaining her qualification from The Chartered Institute of Management Accounts (CIMA).
In addition to taking on the role as Pangolin.Africa’s Financial Manager she is currently the Financial Manager for the Pangolin Photo Safaris Group.
She now leads photographic safaris throughout Africa, South America and India with her husband, renowned photographer Grant Atkinson. They hope that through their photography and eco-tourism they can play a role in conserving wildlife areas and the animals that they so love to photograph.
“Born in Africa, I am blessed to part of a continent like no other. Should you soul be an African one, you will immediately reorganise you truly belong here, and during the course of your journey through life, Africa will steal your heart. To fully describe my love of Africa and how it captivates me would be the start of an incredibly long love story. The conservation of our wildlife and our magnificent landscapes is what drives me to fight to preserve each animal’s right to be here for a long time to come.”
“The privilege of living with free roaming, naturally safe wildlife cannot be reserved for this generation only, we need to individually act as part of a greater whole today to ensure that this continues forever”.
