Description
Hippopotamus Of The Wild brings the greatest yawner in the world to meet you. This female loves to wallow in the waters of her African home, secreting a red substance that looks like blood but actually more like sunblock, moisturiser, and sanitiser all in one! She this vulnerable hippo is threatened by habitat loss and poaching as ivory hunters move from elephants to them.

This is a collection of 12 striking bronze busts, with the first edition currently on exhibition as part of the Faces Of The Wild conservation project in New York City. A partnership with the WWF to bring awareness for threatened species onto the streets of NYC.

Saving nature is at the very heart of WWF’s work. For over 60 years, the organization has sought to find solutions to help save the marvelous array of life on our planet, by applying the best science available and working closely with local communities who live near and among wildlife. For this reason we have partnered with WWF (USA) to provide 30% of sale proceeds for this item to help protect these vulnerable species.
