A Balloon Rhino For An Expanding Problem
In August, Old Quebec Street Shoppes hosted The Balloon Rhino Project, an event dedicated to raising funds & awareness in support of the Pilanesberg Rhinos.
On August 15th, Sean Rooney, one of hundreds of balloon decorators from around the world, began working on the project to create a life-sized rhinoceros entirely out of balloons. The project took him roughly four days and created a lasting impression on the Guelph community.
The Balloon Rhino Project is an international event that is bringing awareness to the slaughter of rhinoceros in Africa by poachers seeking their tusks. If you are interested in learning more about the Pilanesberg Rhinos or in making a donation to help protect them, please visit their website at www.theballoonrhinoproject.co.za.
