Marwell Wildlife’s Go! Rhinos

For 10 weeks throughout this summer (13th July – 22nd September), Marwell Wildlife‘s Go! Rhinos colourful sculptures inhabited the streets of Southampton in a world class mass public art event, showcasing the wealth of artistic talent in the area, whilst highlighting the significant conservation threat facing wild rhinos.  The project was enjoyed by 100,000s of visitors and residents, both young and old, creating a huge sense of community and putting smiles of the faces of thousands!

On Wednesday 30th October our 36 wonderful large rhino sculptures as well as Rudy, Business South’s small rhino were auctioned to benefit 3 charities – Marwell Wildlife, The Rose Road Association & Wessex Heartbeat’s High 5 Appeal at the Grand Harbour Hotel, Southampton and raised an amazing £124,700 for the 3 charities involved.

We would like to thank you for all of your support throughout the project and hope that our rhinos enjoy their new homes.
