Taronga Wild! Rhinos
Taronga Wild! Rhinos was a Wild in Art event running in Sydney, Australia from February to April 2014. My rhino "Unicorn Horn" was part of the mass public art exhibition to help raise awareness and valuable funds for Taronga Zoo’s world leading Black Rhino breeding program and in-situ conservation projects. A spectacular world-class sculpture trail was created, rhinos could be found in the Sydney Harbour foreshore through the Blue Mountains to Dubbo and the Central West region of NSW. (Mine was in Darling Harbour) After the event, the rhinos were sold at auction with the net proceeds of $461 000 going to support Taronga’s rhino conservation efforts. "Unicorn Horn" was bought by Mr and Mrs Bradley for $15 000 (who had previously sponsored it for $7000) and donated to the children's ward in the Prince of Wales Comprehensive Cancer Centre.
