We’re pleased to announce that local Jersey artist Lucy Fleming at Bang Bang has designed ‘Harriet’, Deloitte’s sponsored Tortoise.
Lucy’s inspiration for ‘Harriet’ came from Darwin’s theory of evolution, his journey, findings, and specimens from the Galapagos islands. Harriet is named after the Giant tortoise he brought back from one of his trips to the Galapagos.
Lucy is using left-over paints to avoid waste and she’s using very little acrylic paint to keep Harriet as environmentally friendly as possible.
We can’t wait for Harriet 🐢 to go on display from the 1st July and to raise money for the new Tropical House at Jersey Zoo.
