RHCRU aims to continue Rory’s vision by establishing an elephant education and research centre of excellence, that promotes the potential benefits of elephants to human society, wildlife, and conservation efforts.

Our goal is to secure a future for wildlife by identifying workable solutions to the issues facing both Wildlife and Conservationists in a modernising and overpopulating Africa.


We want to foster an environment of collaboration among experts, fuelled by the common passion to conserve wildlife. Our vision is to collaborate with individuals & organisations to conduct effective conservation and research projects on the ground, thereby holistically addressing the problems associated with having wildlife.

Conservation Starts with Understanding
