Fundraisers of the Month

Our fundraisers of the month are Claudia, Aria, Maddy, Seana and Emilia from Year 1 at St Ives North Primary School in Sydney who took it upon themselves to organise a car wash to raise funds for the Australian Rhino Project. Not only did they raise in excess of $500 towards the project, they also helped drive awareness of the plight of the rhino with their classmates and local neighbourhood. A big thanks to the girls and their parents!

The last few months have been a particularly challenging time for rhinos throughout the world. With news of the shocking poaching of 18 month old rhino orphans, Impi and Gugu at Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage, the poaching of Vince at a Zoo in France near Paris, and the continued slaughtering of rhinos in South Africa, our heart felt thoughts are with those who work daily in the protection and rehabilitation of rhinos throughout the world. Our members and collaborators have a long history of supporting rhino conservation initiatives throughout the world.

We will continue to focus on our task at hand and will bring you further updates shortly.

Allan Davies
Chairman
on behalf of the board and operations team at The Australian Rhino Project
