The puppet, which is designed by Christopher Kelly and has been specially commissioned for Greenpeace, is the size of a double-decker bus and weighs around three tonnes. She will require 15 puppeteers to operate on Sunday, alongside 20 volunteers to haul her through the streets. As she walks through the city she will emit gutteral rumblings, and her roar will be accompanied by the sound of ice breaking and animals bellowing. Following the bear will be thousands of supporters as well as a parade of "Arctic-inspired carnivalesque performers".

Giant Greenpeace Bear.
Because I adore giant things, I wish I could've been in London this past weekend to see this. Giant bear! Yay!
