Nandu



Nandu 

The Great Indian rhino has been cited as 'vulnerable' by the IUCN, and it needs our help!
The Toronto Zoo saves and protects animals and their habitats at home and abroad and this includes the rhino. All rhinos are in desperate need of our help as poaching of these magnificent, and ancient creatures is on the rise. Did you know? There's a possibility that we will lose rhinos forever if the population continues to decline at the rate it is now.

I created a quilted baby rhino is honour of Vishnu's (see previous Vishnu post) baby born at The Toronto Zoo February 2016.

This Rhino statue is on his way to the Toronto Zoo for auction at one of their annual IHeart fundraising events.
