Lloyd is owner of Raggy Charters, is the chairman of the Eastern Cape Dendrological Society, and as such is dedicated to promoting the knowledge, protection and propagation of trees and the preservation of tree-dominated ecosystems as a contribution to effective environmental conservation and improvement in South Africa. He has recently received an Award for Outstanding Voluntary Conservation Service in recognition of his visionary guidance and unselfish voluntary efforts in the conservation of the threatened wetlands of the Eastern Cape. The first project was started eight years ago. We rehabilitate wetlands by tackling the problems of invasive alien species and planting indigenous trees and plants, and currently have 12 projects on-going around the Eastern Cape.
