Corporate Governance




Founder of the Wildlife Industry Trust

    * Werner Booysen


    * As democratically elected on the relevant Trust Meetings



    * The wildlife industry of South Africa


What is donated to the Wildlife Industry Trust by the founder

    * Several database registers and active internet domains, starting the crucial process of censuses, take off's and other vital information.


Main FOCUS areas

    * The Wildlife Industry Trust will focus on developing REGISTERS for the wildlife Industry,

    * Focus actively on advising and influencing decision makers on regulatory development,

    * Creating awareness and participate in ANTI POACHING structures.



    * Numerous organizations are invited to participate and join in the activities of the Wildlife Industry Trust.  The initiative is not a one man operation and institution like the University of Pretoria are on board.



    * The founder expressed his will and believe that the databases and registers must belong to the Wildlife Industry of South Africa as a people and NOT one single individual. No person will ever be in a position to have exclusive rights to what is an national asset and the trust deed explicitly states that the products and assets in the Trust will be used to the benefit of the beneficiaries and not a single persona or organization.


    * Trusts are legal instruments ion South Africa managed by Law in South Africa (Trust Act 58 of 1973) and must operate within these parameters and notarized at the Registrar of South Africa by a notary of the court.


    * Even when the founder of the Trust is deceased the trustees will continue to manage the trust according to the trust deed on behalf of the beneficiaries.


Historical facts about TRUSTS

    "According to financial planning experts the first “Trusts” were done as much as two thousand years ago during the reign of Augustus Caesar. It is thought that a Roman citizen wanted to pass on his property to his children but his wife was not Roman and therefore the children could not have the property. He left all his property to a Roman friend who promised that when he died he would use the property to take care of his children. This way he side stepped the law. He trusted his friend to do what he wanted with his property after his death, thus the term ‘Trust’ came about."

What does our credo "clean green bill of health and compliance" mean?


    * green equals the ENVIRONMENT,

    * health equals the DISEASE commonly spread by fish, birds, wildlife and plants,

    * compliance equals the regulatory and statuary systems on national and inter national level.


What is expected from our Database Administrator


    Installation of new software — It is the job of the DBA to install new versions of DBMS software, application software, and other software related to DBMS administration. It is important that the DBA or other IS staff members test new software before it is moved into a production environment.

    Configuration of hardware and software with the system administrator — In many cases the system software can only be accessed by the system administrator. In this case, the DBA works closely with the system administrator to perform software installations, and to configure hardware and software so that it functions optimally with the DBMS.

    Security administration — One of the main duties of the DBA is to monitor and administer DBMS security. This involves adding and removing users, administering quotas, auditing, and checking for security problems.

    Data analysis — The DBA analyzes data stored in the database and makes recommendations relating to performance and efficiency of that data storage. This includes the effective use of indexes, enabling "Parallel Query" execution, or other DBMS specific features.

    Database design (preliminary) — The DBA can be involved at the preliminary database-design stages, eliminating many problems that might occur. The DBA knows the DBMS and system, can point out potential problems, and can help the development team with special performance considerations.

    Data modelling and optimization — By modelling the data, it is possible to optimize the system layouts to take the most advantage of the I/O subsystem.

    Responsible for the administration of existing enterprise databases and the analysis, design, and creation of new databases.

      * Data modelling, database optimization, understanding and implementation of schemas, and the ability to interpret and write complex Structured Query Language (SQL) queries.

      * Proactively monitor systems for optimum performance and capacity constraints.

      * Establish standards and best practices for SQL.

      * Interact with and coach developers in SQL scripting.
