Happy Dinosaur

A new guest arrived at Marwell Zoo this summer – Velma the dinosaur!

Velma took part in the zoo’s world-class summer event ‘Rise of the Dinosaurs’ and following on from last year’s parody video for the Go! Rhinos project, the Marwell Zoo Choir put together a new song to welcome Velma, taking on the Pharrell Williams song ‘Happy’.

The video was inspired by the staff choir but all parts of the zoo took part including veterinary staff, curators, catering staff, fundraising teams. Even Chief Executive James Cretney makes a solo performance.
