The Rory Hensman Conservation & Research Unit (RHCRU)

RHCRU is a registered Not-For-profit company (Registration Number 2016/046042/08).

The late Rory Hensman learnt so much from observing wild elephants and living with tamed and trained elephants. His wish was that through education and knowledge of the wonders of this animal, we humans would be motivated to look after them. As we head into a modern world where wildlife has little place next to poor communities and economic gain, knowledge, understanding and ambassadorial animals will be the deciding factor between survival and extinction.

RHCRU aims to establish an elephant research centre of excellence, which is unbiased and un-swayed by “who funds the project” and by emotional thinking. The intention is to promote the potential benefits to human society, wildlife and conservation efforts.
