Gillie and Marc so loved crafting the life-sized marching endangered animals for their exhibition of ‘Love The Last March’ in Singapore that they just couldn’t stop! They have now created this limited-edition collection of groups of marchers that are the perfect size to take home.
Inspired by the witness statement and latest documentary by David Attenborough, Love The Last March is on a mission to re-wild the world. The public sculpture experience is the largest bronze sculpture in the world at 192 meters in length, the next largest being the Statue of Unity at 182 meters. Depicting the greatest animal march on the planet, it features 45 of the world’s most endangered species, marching together to save the animal kingdom.
We are currently experiencing the sixth mass extinction, and it’s happening because we are exploiting this beautiful and vibrant world in our obsession for more. In January 2020, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) listed 203 critically endangered mammalian species, including 31 which were tagged as possibly extinct. Every day, more animals, insects, and plant life are pushed closer to the threat of extinction with many already pushed over the edge. It is happening at an alarming rate as we as humans take over and transform the animal kingdom from one that is wild to one that is tame.
With this collection, the march can truly go global; with a hippo, Javan rhino, and red panda settling down in Canada or the brown spider monkey, jaguar, and giant Galapagos turtle getting comfortable in Germany. Each chain of animals will share their message, wherever they end up, that all animals need our help.
This collection brings some of the world's most endangered animals to life as magnificent bronze replicas. By purchasing one of these ‘Love The Last March’ replicas, you will be helping to protect all animals with 30% of the proceeds going straight to WWF Singapore so they can continue to protect the many precious species they work so hard to support.
