The Tusk Rhino Trail, presented by ISPS Handa in partnership with Land Rover, is a London wide art installation that celebrates the magnificence of the rhino, and draws attention to the critical threat facing rhino populations across Africa due to a global poaching crisis. The illegal wildlife trade is now the fourth largest criminal industry in the world, after drugs, arms and human trafficking. Each of the 21 rhinos that make up the trail has been specially designed and decorated by internationally renowned artists.
The unique works of art are on public display at iconic London sites until World Rhino Day on 22nd September. They will then be auctioned by the leading London auction house, Christie’s on 9th October 2018. The funds raised will provide vital support for our conservation projects protecting rhino and other iconic African species.
