Sculpture trail cancelled

Wild Dolphins sculpture

We are extremely disappointed to announce that our Discover Dolphins sculpture trail in Southampton will not be able to go ahead as planned.

The event was due to take place in the summer with around 30 specially designed dolphin sculptures popping up in the city. However, due to the ongoing pandemic and uncertainty for businesses thinking of sponsoring one of the sculptures, plus the practicalities of staging a mass-participation event when restrictions could be imposed again at short notice, the difficult decision has been taken to cancel the event. This is a big disappointment for us as it was hoped that the event would raise much needed funds to help save whales and dolphins from the threats they face each and every day.

WDC's community and events fundraising manager Sharon Stevenson said; ‘We are naturally devastated that Discover Dolphins cannot go ahead and, unfortunately, it has not been possible to postpone the event to a later date.

‘We would like to say a huge thank you to all the local businesses, schools and artists who had expressed an interest in supporting Discover Dolphins and would, of course, welcome an opportunity to work with them in other ways’.

Help us protect whales and dolphins. Please make a donation.
