Bringing Home the Rhino aims to raise funds to purchase at auction a "Wild Rhino" from the Taronga Zoo artists program painted by

Shoalhaven artist Penny Lovelock.

Wild! Rhinos Artists Program

In April last year Taronga put out a call out to artists requesting submissions for rhino designs. Over 150 artists responded with their designs.

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

Shoalhaven artist Penny Lovelock was one of the chosen few to participate in the program

The rhinos will create a trail from Sydney to Dubbo and surrounds from 2nd February to 28th April.

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.

This project wants to raise funds to make a bid- hopefully a winning one at the 14 May Auction with an aim to Bring Home the Rhino!

WHY BRING HOME THE RHINO!

WHY NOT!

The rhino will be able to be used to continue to raise awareness about the plight of rhinos worldwide. Just as the Polar Bear has come to represent all that is wrong with climate change - so too can the rhino be the mascot for all species on the brink of extinction.

Once home in the Shoalhaven the Rhino can tour the local schools spreading the message of conservation.

It could  even make appearances for community events.

Should we be lucky enough to secure the rhino we see it as a gift to the people of the Shoalhaven.

Thats why we are asking for your help to try and secure this amazing piece of art.
