Love The Last March, the longest sculpture in the world was launched to commemorate National Endangered Species Day 2023 (19th May) at the Gardens by the Bay, in Singapore. This is the first edition of a global exhibition that is highlighting the very real crisis of wildlife extinction happening around the world.
A total of 45 of the world’s most endangered species led by a great mountain gorilla, can be seen marching together depicting the greatest animal march on Planet Earth. It aims to bring awareness to the massive rate of wildlife extinction and to help save the animal kingdom. The amazing and thought provoking exhibit will be displayed in Gardens by the Bay from 19 May 2023 until 18 May 2024.
With a little helping hand from technology, Love The Last March is an immersive experience that anyone can experience. With the use of AR, the animals come to life and start marching after being triggered by a QR code.
These giant sculptures are the works of internationally renowned public sculpture artists Gillie and Marc who are known for their monumental sculptures to promote conservation such as The Last Three for the Northern white rhino and The Orphans for African elephants.
“Extinction can often be a silent event, particularly for those of us living in urban
environments, far removed from wildlife. We knew that we had to do something
really big to show how important this was. This issue deserves the largest sculpture
in the world,” shares Gillie.
The exhibit is in partnership with WWF-Singapore (World Wide Fund for Nature Singapore) and the public
can directly donate to them to contribute to the conservation efforts.
Admission to the exhibition is free for the public.
