Gillie & Marc's highly coveted sculptures have animated over 250 cities across the world, and this summer their project ‘A Wild Life for Wildlife’ will roam the Brompton Road and King’s Road bringing joy and wonder to all ages, but importantly raise awareness for endangered animals, in partnership with the Zoological Society of London (ZSL).

One of the greatest joys and sources of wonder comes from the most natural place, the wild. Animals, forests, lakes, and all the beautiful treats of planet earth are more exciting and healing than anything we have created. Yet the world is currently experiencing the 6th mass extinction.

More and more beautiful creatures are in trouble. The reasons can be linked back to us, humans. Thousands of the most important animals are facing imminent extinction unless we act now. But with the same joy and love that we get from being in these magical places, we can also heal them.

Taking a seat on a tandem bike in Royal avenue, joining a game of chess or throwing a ball in a pool, encourages families to become a part of the journey with endangered animals. It allows them to learn and understand why each of these species is in trouble.

With QR codes connected with the sculpture, kids and adults will be transported to important information about the different animals’ lives, needs, and threats
