Marble Arch is proudly hosting The Tusk Rhino Trail with our very own kaleidoscope rhino. We’re delighted that The Tusk Trust, a non-profit organisation that works to protect African wildlife, has chosen the Marble Arch national monument as one of the 21 key locations to promote the campaign and trail and the organisation’s great initiatives.
The Tusk Rhino Trail is a London wide art installation that celebrates the magnificence of rhinos, and draws attention to the severe threat of poaching to their survival. The Trail runs from 21 August to 22 September – World Rhino Day. After this, the rhinos will be auctioned by the leading London auction house, Christie’s on 9 October. The funds raised will provide vital support for our conservation projects protecting rhino and other iconic African species. Each rhino has been specially designed, decorated and embellished by internationally renowned artists, as well as sponsored by an organisation. We are grateful to Nelsons for sponsoring the Marble Arch rhino. The rhino at Marble Arch is the perfect fit as it has been beautified by local artist, Rob and Nick Carter. Whilst in the area, you can visit their captivating and colourful works at their nearby studio in Connaught Village. Each rhino on the Trail has been s, as well as decorated by an artist. We are grateful to Nelsons for sponsoring the Marble Arch rhino.
