Wild! Rhinos Artists Program

In April last year Taronga put out a call out to artists requesting submissions for rhino designs. We were delighted when we received over 150 individual designs. A big thank you to all the artists that submitted design.

The artists committee then met to make a shortlist of designs and 85 designs were selected for sponsors to choose from.

Well done to all those artists who designs were chosen and thank you for all your hard work bringing your designs to life.

The rhinos will create a trail from Sydney to Dubbo and surrounds from 2nd February to 28th April. Get out and about and pick your favourite.

At the end of the trail, on the 14th May at The Star, Pyrmont the life-sized rhino sculptures will go under the hammer at a charity auction to raise critical funding for Taronga’s rhino conservation programs.
