Giraffe About Town features more than 70 sculptures that will form a free, family-friendly trail of discovery for local people and visitors to explore and enjoy until the end of August.
Each sculpture will be sponsored by local businesses, community groups and education organisations. They will also be decorated by local artists and communities – all designed to celebrate Edinburgh’s extraordinary heritage and cultural diversity.
The sculptures will be displayed in locations across the city – creating a trail highlighting hidden gems and engaging with communities from Edinburgh Airport to Leith.
Following a fabulous farewell weekend at Edinburgh Zoo where they will be shown together, the giraffe sculptures will be auctioned at a special event to raise funds that will support our charity’s conservation projects in Scotland and across the world. Our sculptures will find new homes across the city, ensuring a fitting legacy for the people and communities of Edinburgh.
The best way to enjoy it is to download the Giraffe Around Town app to keep a check on your progress. Many businesses are also offering rewards when you ‘collect’ your next giraffe.
