Jason led the collaborative genetic study with seven different countries, including the UK, States, Namibia, Korea and Canada, (using comparative research between White Lions, Snow Leopards, Tigers and White Kermode Bears), which discovered the White Lion Genetic Marker in 2013. This ground-breaking discovery has enabled him to pursue protected status for the White Lions as a sub-species or sub-population, and the capstone animal for ecosystem conservation in the Kruger to Canyons Biosphere.
