Australian Rhino project (hits:129)
Founded by Ray Dearlove, the ultimate goal of The Australian Rhinoceros Project is to ensure the survival of these majestic species by making a significant contribution to ex situ conservation breeding efforts in order to ensure species survival outside of the range states where the issue persists. The objective of such programs is to maintain a viable population outside of the range state, with targeted genetic and demographic management that will allow for the repatriation of African rhinoceros back to their natural habitat and homelands. The scope of this objective should not be underestimated, as it could be generations before this environment is secure and free from poaching.
