Our Rhino – Hope

Rhino

 

Thank you to all the suggestions and entries to name our Rhino, her new name is "HOPE".

 

Paignton Zoo has been supporting rhino conservation in Africa for many years, but they wanted to do even more, so the funds raised from The Great Big Rhino Project will be used by Paignton Zoo to increase their support for rhino conservation.

Our Clinical Director Mark Towl has always supported and donated towards Rhino Charities, so he was more than happy to go to the auction to bid and win this amazing Rhino for himself.

The Great Big Rhino Project has now come to an end with a successful charity auction that raised £123,000 from the 42 life-size painted Rhinos.
