The Australian Rhino Project is a not-for-profit, supporter-based organisation committed to assist in the preservation of the rhinoceros species.

We believe that it is essential that we are open and transparent in all of our activities and communication.

Because of the highly sensitive nature of this Project, our leadership has been structured to ensure that ethical and factual decisions are made at all times. We have formal Partnership Agreements with the Taronga Conservation Society Australia and the Business School and Veterinarian Faculty of the University of Sydney as well as the Classic Safari Company.  These Partnerships are vital to ensure that we are guided by some of the best minds in their fields and also best practice regarding the logistics of capturing rhinos, translocating the animals safely and providing a secure and natural environment for the rhinos in Australia to optimise the growth of the herd in Australia.

We are governed by a Board of Directors and we have also established an Advisory Board to assist us with our decision making, our negotiations, compliance and fundraising. Our Patrons are all well-established world leaders and/or experts in their fields who provide guidance, direction and counsel. Our Ambassadors are exactly that – a group of committed people who carry the torch for rhino conservation and The Australian Rhino Project
