Whooo is Captain Owl?

We are excited to introduce you to our giant owl sculpture painted by artist John Unasa, Captain Owl! He will be joining 46 other owls in The Haier Big Hoot, a free Auckland sculpture trail that will raise significant funds for the vital work of Child Cancer Foundation.


About The Trail

The Haier Big Hoot is a nine week, free Auckland-wide scuplture trail. It will feature 47 bespoke giant owl sculptures painted by various artists and joining them will be 60 owlets designed by school students. The owls will be displayed in public spaces, parks, malls and streets across Auckland. At the end of the trail all owls will be auctioned to raise funds for Child Cancer Foundation.

The owls will land in Auckland on Saturday 3 March and take flight on Sunday 6 May. Find them all using the trail map app and collect rewards as you go.
