Edinburgh, 2011

Edinburgh was transformed into a jungle with elephants, tigers, crocodiles, orangutans and hornbills taking over the city, in what was Scotland's biggest ever outdoor art exhibition. More than 130 brightly painted creatures, designed by artists and celebrities from around Britain, had pride of place on buildings, park benches, lampposts and even traffic lights at the height of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

The works of animal art graced The Royal Botanical Gardens from mid August and were then unleashed onto the streets of Edinburgh throughout September. The exhibition saw Scotland's capital obsessed with finding every last creature, which were were sold at a glittering grand auction in aid of Elephant Family and five UK conservation charities on 29th September in Edinburgh.
