Finding Faru

Finding Faru
Artist: Miss*C - Cleo Heard
Sponsor: Bigwave Media

The rhino is camouflaged in abstract African leaves, and within the leaves you have to find Faru – the brightly coloured African painted rhino. The idea is that everyone has fun – first, you have to find the Great Big Rhino, then find the rhino on the rhino – reminding us how hard it will be to find rhinos soon if we don’t do anything to help.

Visit Finding Faru's own website to find out more and enter a great competition.
