Meet the Team

Project Rhino is managed by a small, passionate, team of conservationists, assisted on a project-by-project basis by anti-poaching & environmental specialists, educators, and volunteers.  

We meet frequently with our NGO members and Reserves to ensure that critical resources are allocated to areas where they are needed most.
