At the time of its inception in 1986 and until November 1988, The Quagga Project was administered by the South African Museum, under the chairmanship of Dr M A Cluver. Vice -chairman was Prof H J Heydenrych, and other committee members were Prof E H Harley, Prof C W Cruywagen, Dr P A Hulley, Mr M Gregor, and Mr R E RAU
In 1988, the Quagga Project adopted a constitution, and the administration of the project shifted to the new legally constituted committee office-bearers. The head Co-ordinator elected was the project’s founder, Mr R.E.Rau, who successfully ran the project until his sad passing in January 2006.
In June 2006, a successor to Mr Rau was appointed. Mr C.S.Lardner accepted the position of Head Co-ordinator under the committee Chairman, Dr M.H.Knight, and vice Chairman, Mr M.W.G.Gregor. The Treasurer at the time was Dr P.A.Hulley
In 2008 Mr C.S.Lardner concluded the formation of a Section 21 Company, namely, “The Quagga Project (Incorporated under the Act of Article 21), Registration No: 2008/011276/08”. The Quagga Project was thus now a legally constituted body, registered with the Registrar of Companies as non profit or gain, and also registered with the South African Revenue Services as a non profit organisation.
