Welcome to Wild Dolphins

The Wild Dolphins have now left the streets of Aberdeen!

If you want one more chance to see the 50 spectacular life-sized fibreglass sculptures of bottlenose dolphins them head to Marischal College from 5-7th September for the final farewell. 

Organised by Wild in Art with The ARCHIE Foundation, the official charity of the Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital, and Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC), the dolphins will then be auctioned to raise money for the two charities.

The finished designs include a pirate, a diver and Spiderman, and dolphins made of mosaics, wool and willow, so there is sure to be something that appeals to everyone – we’d love to hear which is your favourite!  

Our talented artists have taken inspiration from the sea, trees, birds, space, local industry, the Northern Lights and the media.

Locations include the beach esplanade, Footdee, Aberdeen Harbour, Duthie Park, Hazlehead Park, Marischal College, the Castlegate, Aberdeen University, Union Square, Bon Accord and St Nicholas Centres and Balnagask Golf Course, as well as Torry Battery, a known hotspot for watching real dolphins.
