PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! The centrepiece of Bristol Zoo Gardens’ summer celebrations has been revealed. The huge moving gorilla made of wood will sit on the main lawn from July 21 to mark the final weeks of the Clifton visitor attraction. The giant feature is taller than the largest giraffe ever recorded, and as wide as three king size beds. Clad in sustainable wood, the installation is sure to captivate visitors of all ages with surprise movements and motions throughout the day, as the female gorilla ‘Wilder’ ‘eats’ lettuce. Weighing more than four tonnes, the sculpture has been made from 180 square metres of local yew, cedar, pine and oak, donated by Westonbirt Arboretum. As the gorilla presides majestically over proceedings, families will also have the chance to immerse themselves in a fun interactive theatrical experience especially written for the final summer.

Part silent disco, part storytelling adventure, the show has been inspired by the next chapter of Bristol Zoo’s story and encourages children to get wild themselves with dancing, games and lots of fun for the whole family. The BIG Summer Send-Off will also feature a Past, Present and Future outdoor exhibition on Bristol Zoo Gardens’ historic top terrace. Running along the main parade, the exhibition will include poems, pictures and heartfelt words to create a history of the zoo made by its visitors. Simon Garrett, Head of Public Engagement for Bristol Zoological Society, said: “We’re hugely excited to share details of this exciting arrival at the Zoo, in addition to all the amazing events we have planned for our final summer. We know that the Zoo and its animals have played an important role in the lives of many – it is amazing to think that we have welcomed over 90 million visitors.
