The Great Big Rhino Project is a trail around the streets, parks and open spaces of the English Riviera and Exeter, and beyond. For 10 weeks, life-size rhino sculptures will inhabit the streets, showcasing the wealth of artistic talent in the area, while highlighting the significant conservation threat facing wild rhinos and how the local business community can make a difference. Similar Wild in Art events have run throughout the country, including The Great Gorillas Project in 2013. Last year Bristol and London had Shaun the Sheep raising funds for Wallace & Grommit’s Children’s Charity.
The Rhinos can be seen on the streets until Sunday 9th October. They will be on display at Paignton Zoo from Friday 14th to Sunday 16th October before being auctioned for charity in early November. Money raised by Paignton Zoo’s Great Big Rhino Project will be channelled through Save the Rhino International.
Parkland residents will be visiting Rhino Blossom and Lives in our Hands at Bernaville Garden Centre, Cornerways residents won’t have to travel far to see Rhino Stardust located on Preston green.
