For 10 weeks in the summer of 2016, 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, generating huge increases in footfall, public interest and media coverage providing opportunities for sponsors to benefit from association with and coverage from the project.


The Great Big Rhinos will be invading the streets from Saturday 30th July until Sunday 9th October 2016. They will then be at Paignton Zoo from Friday 14th to Sunday 16th October 2016 before being auctioned for charity in November 2016. The funds rasied from the auction will be used by Paignton Zoo to support rhino conservation.
