The Royal Mail has selected Art’s image of a rhinoceros for a World Wildlife Fund stamp set issued today.

Ten species of animal that are presently involved in WWF conservation projects around the globe were selected in addition to the Black Rhinoceros, including an African Elephant, Mountain Gorilla, Siberian Tiger, Polar Bear, Amur Leopard, Iberian Lynx, Red Panda, African Wild Dog and the Golden Lion Tamarin.

The Black Rhino is listed as critically endangered, reaching a population low of 2,410 in 1995 mainly because of poaching.  Since then numbers have been on the very slow rise.
