Sport is the founder and CEO of Game Rangers International . A native of Zimbabwe, he worked with elephants and Game Scouts in the jungles of Cambodia before returning to Southern Africa in 2007.

Sport on his roles with GRI: My role as CEO is to ensure that GRI, as a non-profit organisation, functions and grows in the most efficient and effective way possible for the greater good of wildlife conservation in Zambia, whilst empowering local communities and respecting their customs and traditions. In addition to my role as CEO, I am also the Honorary Warden of greater Kafue National Park, which enables me to support and work alongside the Zambian Wildlife Authority, in order to conserve one of the largest and greatest wildlife reserves in the world.  This support is deployed via GRI’s Resource Protection Department.
