The Great Big Rhino Project
For 10 weeks in the summer of 2016, life-size rhino sculptures will rampage through the streets, parks and open spaces of the English Riviera and Exeter creating a fun trail for all the family to enjoy.
From Saturday 30th July through to Sunday 9th October our life-size rhino sculptures will be located throughout the English Riviera and Exeter. Our rhinos will form a fun trail for all to enjoy, and also highlight the significant conservation threat facing wild rhinos.
Our rhinos will then return to Paignton Zoo from Friday 14th to Sunday 16th October 2016 before being auctioned for charity on Thursday 3rd November 2016.
The funds raised from the auction will be used by Paignton Zoo to support rhino conservation.
rHINOS facing extinction
Rhinos have been around for 40 million years and are an important part of a wide range of ecosystems in Africa and Asia.
There are five species: black, white, greater one-horned, Javan and Sumatran. All of these are threatened with extinction – three are ‘Critically Endangered’ as defined by the IUCN (World Conservation Union). This means that they will not survive without massive and urgent action. We must not let them join the dodo in extinction!
