SHAFTESBURY SUPPORT THE TUSK RHINO TRAIL WITH LAUNCH IN CARNABY LONDON

The Tusk Rhino Trail launched in Shaftesbury’s highly popular destination, Carnaby London. The month-long campaign will celebrate the magnificent rhino and to raise awareness for the conservation of the endangered African species.

21 specially painted and embellished rhino sculptures have charged onto the streets of London, including a design by Ronnie Wood situated on Broadwick Street just off Carnaby Street. The sculpture can be seen in Carnaby throughout the month-long campaign until 22 September.

Ronnie Wood was joined by two of the UK’s most respected artists David Mach and Adam Dant, who have also designed sculptures for the campaign, under the iconic Carnaby Street arch with a ‘crash’ of rhinos.

All 21 rhinos have been addressed by what3words, a unique 3-word address which allows visitors to easily spot and follow the trail around London.

Ronnie Wood said: “My inspiration is that this beautiful prehistoric creature should be around for future generations of our children to see. I tried to include motifs from the African flags of the main rhino populated regions.”

Simon Quayle, Director at Shaftesbury, said: “Shaftesbury are proud to support Tusk with the launch of the Rhino Trail and delighted that Carnaby will be home to this spectacular sculpture designed by Ronnie Wood. The protection of the planet and endangered species is a matter close to our hearts, and we hope that the campaign will raise awareness to our visitors about how they can also support the cause.”

The Tusk Rhino Trail culminates with the celebration of World Rhino Day on 22 September.
