An elephant, a platypus and a Sumatran Tiger take a walk through Sydney…

There’s going to be a spectacular parade of animal light sculptures from Hyde Park to Sydney Opera House to celebrate Taronga Zoo’s Centenary year. The parade is a nod to a historical moment in 1916, when the animals of Taronga Zoo marched from Moore Park to Mosman.

It’s all in aid of drawing attention to the Zoo’s campaign to preserving ten critical species for the future, both in Australia and Sumatra. They’ll be running with the phrase Stand Up #ForTheWild.

The parade will begin at Hyde Park North, running along Macquarie Street and ending at the Sydney Opera House, where there’ll be a grand finale performance.
