Meet the curious creatures "protecting the environment"

A series of enormous wooden sculptures will be installed south of Perth later this year.

Created by Danish artist Thomas Dambo, and standing at up to 5-metres tall, the "protectors of the environment", will each have their own distinct personality.

“We can design an entire world out of trash when we know what to do with it," Dambo said.

"That's why I build these larger-than-life projects out of recycled wood and materials. I hope my work inspires others to be kinder to nature and our planet."

Visitors will be encouraged to explore the Mandurah region, less than an hour south of Perth, to discover the installations at various locations when the exhibition opens to the public later this year.

Dambo has exhibited extensively throughout the world including in Denmark, the US, France, Germany, China, South Korea and Chile.

His works celebrate the diversity, beauty and importance of the natural world, with all the artist's works handmade using recycled materials.

This public art event is initiated and produced by FORM – Building a State of Creativity Inc., and will be delivered in collaboration with the City of Mandurah.

A lifestyle town with a holiday vibe, Mandurah combines dolphin spotting and relaxing canal cruises with adventures to lesser-known wetlands and beaches.
