What’s it all about….Colchester Zoo - Stand Tall for Giraffes
In celebration of their 50th birthday, Colchester Zoo, presents Stand Tall for Giraffes, a huge public art event of 2.5 metre high giraffe sculptures, in partnership with their charity, Action for the Wild. www.colchester-zoo.co.uk/standtall

The project is being developed in partnership with Wild in Art and the funds raised will help to assist conservation projects all over the world including the charity’s UmPhafa Reserve in South Africa.
Education Programme – Schools Giraffes
77 schools and groups from all over Essex have signed up to design 82 giraffes for Stand Tall. They have all been working hard coming up with names for their giraffes and producing some fantastic designs. Some schools have even taken the Stand Tall theme further with fancy dress days, cake sales, face painting and giraffes model making activities.
The schools giraffes will appear in small herds of sculptures around the county in high profile locations, so do visit them from the 2nd June to see all of the hard work that the Essex school children have put into this valuable community project.
The giraffe sculptures were all entered into a competition which wildlife presenter, Michaela Strachan, judged. Michaela had a tough decision to make but chose, Savannah Hamilton, by Hamilton Primary School as the winner of the Stand Tall Schools competition.
