The Big Hoot - Auckland 2018

What a hoot

Painted owlsIf you have been wandering around Auckland recently, chances are you will have crossed paths with many owls.

Over 100 owls have landed in parks, public spaces, malls and libraries, turning Auckland into a virtual aviary. It's all for charity, with 47 giant owls, each a bespoke work of art, being auctioned off to fundraise for the Child Cancer Foundation.

The Child Cancer Foundation provides practical, emotional and financial support to children with cancer and their families.

Many litres of Resene paints and an impressive number of testpots were used to add colourful personalities and characters to the once white owls.
