Erica the Rhino Has Escaped the Wild and is here on the World Wide Web!

Welcome! You’re probably wondering who on earth Erica is and how she’s managed to escape the wild?! Well, in truth, she’s not a real rhino. She is one of many, life-sized, fibreglass models created by Marwell Zoo in celebration of their 40th anniversary, but Erica is unique…

Marwell Wildlife is bringing Go! Rhinos; a mass, world-class public art exhibition, to the streets and parks of Southampton for 10 weeks this summer. From the 13th July till the 22nd September, rhino sculptures will trail all over the city, demonstrating the artistic talent that Southampton has to offer. Over the last few months, a variety of local organisations have agreed to sponsor a Rhino and are in the process of painting them with their very own look and feel. The ECS department (Electronics and Computer Science), here at the University of Southampton are taking it one step further (check out the sponsorship announcement)!
