More than 5,000 rhinos have been poached in South Africa since 2010, and it's only escalating every year. At this rate, rhinos will be extinct within the next ten years. We need to act now to ensure that rhinos survive this epidemic.
The primary objective of The Australian Rhino Project is tomestablish a breeding herd of rhinoceros in Australia. This herd will serve as an ‘insurance population’ in the event of extinction of the species in the wild in South Africa. The plan is to import 80 rhinos from South Africa to Australia over a four year period, with the ultimate goal of reintroducing the rhinos and their progeny to their natural habitat in Africa.
The first rhinos have been identified and the project now needs your help to relocate these rhinos to Australia.
