Secrets:  How do you save the endangered Black Rhino? Shoot them? Apparently so.
I was inspired to carve this piece after reading the Namibian government issues up to five permits per year which are auctioned to the highest bidder to kill this magnificent animal. This way Namibia gets a lot of money to combat poaching and rich, morally-poor
hunters can convince themselves the rhino’s welfare is uppermost in their thoughts rather than boasting a new addition to their ‘trophy’ room. Renowned for expressing his thoughts on a range of current topics through his artwork, Peter has made this year's black box his comment on the sometimes rather dubious way of conserving the endangered black rhino - by auctioning off 5 tickets per year to shoot one.
