About the Project
One nearly universal trait that all humans possess is the inability to resist melting a little bit when they see a baby animal. This shared sentiment transcends cultural boundaries and speaks to a deep connection we have with the innocence of nature. Bursting with life and distinctive personalities, the sight of these creatures not only uplifts but also invokes an instinctual urge to protect.

Enter the world of 'Wild about Babies,' recognized as the world's most important public sculpture of 2022, now permanently exhibited in Melbourne. Discover its captivating presence at Melbourne Zoo, Elliott Ave, Parkville, VIC 3052. This new location enhances the sculpture's influence, turning wildlife conservation into a cause that everyone will rally behind.
