SINGAPORE – Gardens by the Bay is hosting the largest number of life-sized tiger sculptures in Singapore as part of WWF-Singapore’s AR-mazing Tiger Trail, which raises awareness of tiger conservation and other key environmental issues facing the planet today.
Featuring a total of 33 tigers exhibited across key locations in Singapore, each tiger has been decorated by a renowned local or international artist, presenting various perspectives on how climate change, poaching and deforestation are affecting tigers in the wild. A total of eight sculptures can be found in a trail that spans the area outside Flower Dome, to Supertree Grove, to near The Meadow at Gardens by the Bay.
Through these sculptures, visitors can experience perspectives by the likes of Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood, local interdisciplinary artist Kumari Nahappan, cult Thai illustratorPhannapast “Yoon” Taychamaythakool, and British visual artist Jake Chapman of the Chapman Brothers fame.
As Gardens by the Bay marks its 10th anniversary this year, it aims to further its efforts in raising public awareness on biodiversity and sustainability by introducing more programmes and activities with a strong environmental thrust.
“One such example is partnering WWF-Singapore for its AR-mazing Tiger Trail. For the rest of this year, the community can look forward to a series of exciting and engaging sustainability-themed activities at Gardens by the Bay.”
Felix Loh, CEO of Gardens by the Bay
