We all know how talented Imagineers are. How magical would it be to own a piece of their personal collection while helping to save the world’s most endangered animals, the Sumatran Rhino? Here is your chance to do just that!

The Sumatran Rhino calls Indonesia home. However, most people who live or visit there have never seen one because there are less than 100 remaining. The International Rhino Foundation is working to increase awareness of this beautiful animal so that sightings may one day become less rare. One of the ways they are doing this is through an art exhibition and auction, and Imagineers are lending their creativity to the cause.

As part of Disney efforts to reverse the decline of Sumatran rhinos, Imagineers Joe Rohde, Morgan Richardson, and Zsolt Hormay joined Indonesian artists and wildlife photographers in contributing artwork to the Sumatran Rhino Art Exhibition: Indonesia’s Hidden Treasure. The exhibition and online auction are raising awareness and advocacy for the Sumatran rhino while also raising funds to support future conservation initiatives. All the proceeds from the sales of their artwork will go to Sumatran rhino conservation programs within the International Rhino Foundation. Bidding will end Feb. 14.

Joe, portfolio creative executive for WDI, believes we all have a responsibility to be a voice for the voiceless and help every animal in need.

“Each of us must do our part in our own way to help the world of wild animals and wild places,” Joe said. “We who are artists have a particular skill to inspire and move people’s emotions. I am happy to have the opportunity to apply those skills on behalf of these wild brothers and sisters of the forest.”

You, too, can be an advocate for the Sumatran rhino. Engage in the conversation on social media and let everyone know about these amazing animals, and what you are doing to protect them in the wild.

Quick Facts about the Sumatran Rhino:

  • Sumatran rhinos can only be found in Indonesia.
  • It is the smallest living rhino and the only Asian rhino with two horns.
  • Sumatran rhinos are typically hunted for the keratin that can be found in their horns. This keratin is highly desired for medicine, although it’s been proven to have no medicinal value. It’s also used as a status symbol by humans, thus making us the rhino’s biggest predator.

Thank you, Imagineers!
