My Name is Mario Buzzanca (aka Rhino Buzz). I live in Melbourne Australia. I am ICORPs Australian Chapter Leader and Volunteer Co-ordinator. I have completed several duty tours on the ground in Mozambique and South Africa with ICORPs Counter-Poaching unit.

Hello followers of ICORP. My name is Chantelle Zarafa and I have been volunteering for the International Coalition of rhino protection for 2 years. I am based in Australia in a place called Melbourne – Victoria. I have embarked on a wonderful journey with ICORP, with my role as a community development coordinator and volunteer leader and Vice Chapter leader of Australia.

I have gained my experience in Africa as a volunteer in Conservation and working with the captive animal, I have 9-year experience working with Domestic animals mainly focusing on canine behaviour and 6 years of Volunteer experience with African wildlife. It’s a great pleasure and honour to be a part of this organisation and movement in helping continue to protect Africa’s iconic species from extinction.

Gary du Plooy

My name is Gary du Plooy, I live in the UK, a web, logo & brand identity freelance
graphic designer and illustrator. I created and maintain ICORP’s website as well as
all its social media outlets.

Gary developed our branding, logo and initial marketing menu for our fresh, fast and healthy
food concept, Delicious. His brief was to create a brand identity that looked fresh and homely,
not ‘fuddy-duddy’. Our identity had to shout ‘fresh, fast and healthy’. A bit of a tough one but
his interpretation was bang on the money. If you want personal attention to detail and loads of
talent with a touch of crazy, he’s your guy!

Hi, my name is Benjamin Raddatz, an Army veteran and conservationist, working to establishing a professional armed capability and sanctuary to protect flora and fauna in Southern Africa. Currently residing in Queensland Australia and growing a support base for ICORP, while returning to Africa periodically to support operations.

I believe that we should give the same security and defensive capability to endangered wildlife, as we give ourselves. And take a practical approach to conservation.
