Rhino populations across Africa are in critical danger. Threatened by a global poaching crisis, rhinos may become extinct within 15 years without intervention.

To raise funds for the conservation of endangered African species, Tusk has launched a spectacular rhino sculpture trail in central London.

21 specially painted rhinos are on display at iconic sites, including Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden and Carnaby Street. The sculptures have been designed by world-leading contemporary artists and designers, including Ronnie Wood, Marc Quinn, Harland Miller, Gavin Turk, The Chapman Brothers, Zhang Huan and Eileen Cooper.

Following the exhibition, the artworks were auctioned auction in aid of Tusk on 9 October 2018, at prestigious London auction house, Christies.

To help people easily find and admire each rhino on the trail, every sculpture has a unique 3 word address. This describes the exact 3m x 3m spot where it stands. For example, Marc Quinn’s rhino can be found at ///wrong.when.along in Berkeley Square, while Gavin Turk’s is at ///discouraged. slip.zooms opposite the National Portrait Gallery.

The trail was on display for four weeks, from 20 August until 22 September 2018.
