More than 20,000 euros have been raised to make a statue of walrus Freya. More than a thousand people have donated money. The creator wants to make it clear with the image that animals should not just be killed.
Freya has been in the news a lot these past few weeks. The walrus often appeared in ports in Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands and last in Norway. Many people went there to see her and that caused the animal a lot of stress.
According to experts, things were getting worse and worse with Freya. Eventually, the animal had to be put to sleep last weekend. We made this video about that:
The amount for the statue came in a few days. The creator of the action has said that if there is no statue, the money will go to the World Wildlife Fund.
