Preserving Wildlife: Ensuring Our Children Experience the Beauty of Nature

What if we woke up one day to an Earth with no signs of animals? Can an Earth with only human populations survive? The answer is No. Our ecosystems reflect the beauty of Earth, and yet, many of our wildlife are heading towards extinction. Humanity will be greatly affected should any one group of the ecosystem is destroyed. More awareness and actions are needed for everyone to play their part in saving the world and saving ourselves.

I have the opportunity to be a part of the monumental debut unveiling celebration of Love the Last March; the global project by Gillie and Marc. Passionate as wildlife activists and public sculpture artists, Gillie and Marc aims to spread this message of love, equality, conservation, and hope across the World; using art to create a better tomorrow for everyone.

Love The Last March is hosted by Singapore in Gardens by the Bay and is the World’s longest sculpture standing at 192 meters in length. Using recycled bronze to feature 62 of the world’s most endangered species led by Gorilla taking the lead, reaches out his hand to urge everyone to join him to protect the wildlife kingdom. However, in actual fact, according to World Wildlife Fund (WWF),  more than 41,000 species are actually being threatened to this day, The numbers of endangered species are at an alarming rate. The massive ecosystem has been disrupted and not many have seen or realized it. This is why Gillie and Marc aim to create sculptures all around the world to share stories of our endangered species in the hope to create positive awareness worldwide.

At Love the Last March, you can find each sculpture to be interactive. Simply scan the QR code beside it, and you’ll be able to find information about the animals behind the sculpture such as their habitat, behaviour, family, and most important of all, why it is threatened.

The leading gorilla sculpture holding out its hands, speaks to me greatly and had me thinking greatly how much I want to protect my family, especially my little one. It’s the same as these animals. The desire to keep my family safe from harm is unexplainably strong, it’s an innate ability of every parent to protect their kiddos and family. Yet we don’t see this in great importance for the animals simply because wildlife is not exactly near us in our daily activities. However, not being near us does not mean that things aren’t happening. If you have the chance, please make your way to visit lovely sculptures to experience the beauty of wildlife. Though it will not be a real-life experience, I’m sure you will get to experience the beauty behind these lovely arts.

Each of these sculptures was created based on what Gillie and March photographed and sketched throughout the years. You will actually get to experience how these animals look like in their 3D version as though you are experiencing the beauty of these animals in real life. Let me show you some of these beautiful sculptures here:

The topic of sustainability has been increasingly practiced to save on our resources; so let’s not forget about our precious wildlife. The beauty of diversity and ecosystem is what our Planet Earth needs. Let’s work together to join in the March of these animals to save these precious resources. Humans have the power and ability to enhance our living society and standards to a better place. If we all play a part to live sustainably, I’m sure more awareness and actions can and will be done to have ourselves as part of nature again to protect our entire ecosystems.
