Martin Place, Taronga Wild! Rhinos

"Taronga Wild! Rhinos" is an art event that features a huge herd of wildly colourful rhino sculptures installed around Sydney in February. This mass public art exhibition helps raise awareness and valuable funds for Taronga Zoo’s Black Rhino breeding program and conservation projects. This rhino is located in Martin Place outside the studios of Channel 7one of the sponsors. "Sunrise: Wake up with friends" was created by the crew of the breakfast show Sunrise and signed by the presenters.

  2. Oh, I love this rhino. We had the cow art installation here in SF a few years back but I really like the rhino. Thanks for bringing this to us.

  3. A worthy cause. Poaching is decimating their population. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
