What they say…

It’s certainly been a huge comfort to know that the experts are always just at the end of the phone. We have so loved working with your passionate team – and for me personally it’s (Go Wild Gorillas) been the best thing I have ever been involved in.

Alexandra Shears

Head of Communications and Fundraising, Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust

We commissioned Wild in Art to animate the streets of London during the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. They brought with them a wealth of expertise and knowledge. They are a really great bunch of people, very flexible, and they faced every challenge with a positive view and were able to tackle it head on. They’ve been absolutely fantastic and this project (Stroll Discovery Trails) would not have been able to happen without them.

David Holley

Senior Events Officer, Mayor of London’s office

The Big Hoot became one of the most memorable public art and charity projects Birmingham had ever seen, bringing thousands of additional visitors to the city centre to follow the owl trail and enjoy our great shopping, dining and cultural attractions.
