Sculptures of orangutans, elephants, tigers, crocodiles and hornbills were on display at Edinburgh’s Royal Botanic Gardens and Harvey Nichols in Edinburgh city centre. The event ran alongside the infamous Fringe Festival.

Open-top safari jeeps were on hand to help tourists and residents spot the wildlife. The sculptures were then auctioned online to raise money and awareness of Elephant Family and partnering charities including the Sumatran Orangutan Society and WWF Scotland.

A number of fashion houses and celebrities also produced artwork for Jungle City.

  1. Your haircut is absolutely amazing! I normally prefer long hair to short, but this makes me reconsider. It’s so soft and feminine! I think I usually don’t like short hair because its boy-ish, but that is definitely not the case with your cut.

  2. When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” To this day, especially in times of “disaster,” I remember my mother’s words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers – so many caring people in this world.
