Rhino Invasion

The Fibreglass rhinos are positioned around the ancient capital of Furness as a complementary tourist attraction to South Lakes Wild Animal Park.

The idea is the brainchild of Reverend Alan Mitchell, vicar of St Mary’s Church.

The fibreglass sculptures, commissioned by local businesses and painted by schools in the area, have been the focus of art projects and research into the plight of the endangered creatures.

The rhinos are part of an initiative to promote the community and attract tourists to the town.
