At the beginning of the 20th century there were estimated to be 500,000 rhinos across Africa and Asia. At the end of 2015, there were around only 29,000 rhinos (all five species) surviving in the wild.
I enjoyed every minute producing my pastel drawing of a ‘White Rhino’, and am delighted to be a part of the Explorers Against Extinction auction, to be held at the Royal Geographical Society, London. Funds raised will be used to help protect endangered rhinos, elephants, lions and help combat wildlife crime.
In South Africa, every 7 hours a rhino dies. Poachers kill on average 3 rhinos per day – and 1 elephant every 15 minutes, to feed the demand for horn and ivory, on the black market.
The future of wildlife is in all our hands, and thank you for your interest in my ‘White Rhino’ artwork.
