Walk With The Big Hippo by internationally renowned artists, Gillie and Marc, is giving the public the chance to literally walk in the shoes of a creature from the wild. Being able to take a walk in someone else’s shoes is one of the most powerful experiences we can have. To do so, we must tap deep into our hearts with empathy and compassion. Walking in the shoes of a wildlife creature is something we should all experience at least once in our lives.
Peeping out of the top of a Dr Martens boot, this hippo is looking to see who is willing to walk with her. She is hoping to help people from all walks of life know what it’s like to walk in a hippo’s shoes. She hopes they will understand the problems of habitat loss, poaching and climate change her kind are facing so they can spread the word and help remove the threat of extinction.
Walk With The Big Hippo is part of the broader ‘Love The Last’ project, a social movement driven by public art to raise awareness, funds and support for endangered animals across the world, encouraging people to take action before we lose these animals forever.
