Edinburgh is a jungle. The animals are alive. It’s up to the city to keep them that way.
This year's exhibition turns Edinburgh into an exotic jungle; filled to the brim with iconic animals, the sounds of the city replaced with the trumpeting of elephants, birdsong and monkey chatter. Park benches, fountains, pavements and parks become perches, watering holes, hunting and grazing grounds.
From August to the end of September 2011, Jungle City Edinburgh will be bursting with colourful animals, each painted and decorated by a different artist or design house.
The 130 endangered animal sculptures will act as ambassadors for their species. They aim to raise over £1million rapid action funds for their wild relatives back home in the jungles of Asia, and give them a fighting chance of survival.
