While we were visiting, there was a unique art display in progress on the streets of London, raising funds to help save the Asian Elephant from extinction in the wild. We were immediately fascinated by each of the sculptures and went out of our way to see and catch a photo of each. Of the 258 statues, I was able to capture 33 provided below. Take a moment to browse thru these as each is a unique creation and the campaign raised over £4 million. The information below is directly off the organization's web site if you wish to learn more.
Elephant Family is a small but hugely ambitious charity working to save the Asian elephant from extinction in the wild. Registered in 2002, Elephant Family has developed into a lean and focused force for the endangered Asian elephant. Acutely aware of overcrowding in the charity sector, we exist out of urgent necessity due to a serious lack of investment and attention going into elephant conservation.
Elephant Parade represents the greatest opportunity to date to raise funds and awareness for our cause. Elephant Parade is a social enterprise founded by father and son Mike and Marc Spits. Through their exhibitions, they aim to raise support for the endangered Asian elephant, with benefits of Elephant Parade being donated to Elephant Family.
