Today, we are living in the 6th mass extinction of wildlife species.
We are losing between 200 to 2,000 different species every year.
This is believed to be thousands of times the natural rate of extinction.
This is clearly a huge problem.
On 19 May 2023, WWF-Singapore and Gillie and Marc will commemorate National Endangered Species Day with the launch of the largest sculpture in the world – Love The Last March. At the iconic Gardens by the Bay, 60 of the world’s most endangered species including some native to Singapore, such as pangolins and hawksbill turtle, to regional species like orangutans and elephants, will be marching together, forming the largest bronze sculpture in the world at 192 meters in length. Depicting the greatest animal march on Planet Earth, it aims to bring awareness to the massive rate of wildlife extinction and to help save these key species.
Designed to be an interactive experience, you’ll be able to obtain educational information about the animal behind the sculpture, including its behaviour, what it likes to eat, and most importantly, why it is threatened by scanning the QR codes attached to it.

Plastics pose a serious threat to animals — they may inadvertently ingest or become entangled in plastic litter.
In fact, abandoned or discarded fishing gear (commonly referred to as ghost gear) is among the deadliest forms of marine plastic debris. It can continue to catch target and non-target species indiscriminately for many years, and many animals that get caught or entangled in ghost gear can die a slow and painful death through suffocation or exhaustion.
Donate here to combat plastic pollution, remove ghost gear, and create a safer habitat for our wildlife.
