Taronga Zoo Wild Rhino Project Use Easy-On protective coating
Environmental Coatings Australasia and our NSW partner Osprey NSW recently coated 125 rhino sculptures with easy-on for the Taronga Zoo Wild!Rhinos event. The easy-on protective coating was applied to the the colourful sculptures in preparation for their placement in the streets, parks and public spaces of Sydney, Dubbo and surrounds. The coating will provide a protective barrier against everyday wear and tear plus prevent the sculptures from being damaged by unwanted graffiti. The wild artworks will be auctioned at The Star, Pyrmont to raise over $400,000 for Taronga’s rhino conservation programs.
“We’re pleased to have been part of such a wonderful project and the opportunity to help protect each sculpture with the easy-on coating. This event not only adds vibrancy and colour to the city of Sydney, but helps to raise awareness and much needed financial support for a great cause.” Keith Bissell, General Manager – Environmental Coatings Australasia
At the culmination of the event the life-sized rhino sculptures will go under the hammer at a charity auction to raise critical funding for Taronga’s rhino conservation programs.
