Majestic 3D Sculptures of Ocean Animals

Step into Marina Square's Central Atrium this school holiday period to discover majestic 3D sculptures of endangered ocean animals.

Taking center stage is an awe-inspiring sculpture of a magnificent whale measuring 8 meters long and other life-sized marine animals such as the shark, dolphin, turtle, seal, polar bears, and a waddle of penguins. Made with eco-friendly cardboard, these amazingly intricate cardboard creations bring the sculptures to life.

Pledge To Beat Plastic Pollution 

Families can also join #BeatPlasticPollution by taking a pledge to reduce their environmental footprint and plastic consumption in favor of recyclable goods and waste reduction. The first 700 shoppers who make the pledge by taking a photo at the Pledge Booth will receive a mini whale cardboard DIY sculpture set.

Get Surrounded by AR Animals

Children (and adults) will be fascinated to meet a diverse range of wildlife animals through an immersive 3D augmented reality experience. Centered around a dynamic, ever-changing watering hole, the AR experience will enable adults and kids to meet the wildlife as they graze, drink, and interact with the environment around them.
