PETRO & CLARA
I am looking for Clara.
Calling all Wildlife Farmers, Game Reserves, Rhino Organizations, Anti Poaching Units, Taxidermist and anyone who knows someone that may or can assist.
WHO IS CLARA ?
Clara is a full mount of a Rhinoceros that has been poached.
WHY AM I LOOKING FOR HER ?
In efforts to raise awareness for Africa's Rhinos and to support leading ethical animal organizations and their work with the Black and White Rhino I will be heading to the streets in search of Clara. Once I find her with the help of the above mentioned organizations the vision is to travel from town to town, city to city, country to country, continent to continent to exhibit the full mount and yes that includes Asia, Vietnam and America.
The mission is to collaborate and work with international conservationists, organizations and artists to see what more we can can come up with to protect Rhino species across the world. What is happening to all the Rhinoceros bodies and why are we not using it to stop this madness ?
DOES CLARA HAVE A CALF?
As horrible as this sounds you all know that this is happening. When poaching units move in to kill they kill everything, mother, calf and unborn.
Who has Clara's calf or access to a stillborn or unborn fetus due to poaching ?
The illegal wildlife trade is valued at between $7–$23 billion USD per year and is one of the five most lucrative global crimes. It’s not just a crime against wildlife, as animal trafficking claims the lives of people helping to protect wildlife. Over 6 100 known Rhinos have been poached in South Africa in the last 9 years. Who knows what the numbers really are ? Wildlife owners and animal organizations can not do the work without your involvement and support.
DO I WANT TO EXHIBIT A RHINO FULL MOUNT WITH OPEN WOUNDS & A MISSING FACE ?
This is grose !?
No this is not grose. What is grose is the fact that we have corrupt people in government allowing this to happen. It's grose to wipe out an entire crash of Rhinos and having to see pictures of calf's and fetuses. It's grose to to drive a specie to extinction and kill an entire animal for a horn. It's grose that end consumers simply don't care (or are still unaware ?)
THE SACRED HORN
The Sacred Horn is an Awareness Art Project to get communities and organizations involved in creating an Art Installation that resembles a Rhino Horn for Rhinos all over the world. Each horn will have a smaller replica that will be exhibited and also be transported to a wildlife organization or farm to have an image taken with either a White Rhino or Black Rhino. The images with the Awareness Art Horn replicas will be exhibited along with other art created for the Earth Alive 365 Awareness Portfolio for endangered species.
