I used to be indecisive…

…but now I'm not so sure

the elephant parade


In the summer, an elephant parade visited a shopping centre/mall near me.  There were about 20 or so life size baby elephants placed around the mall, raising awareness of the plight of the Asian elephant.  The numbers of Asian elephants is falling, and the money raised from the sale of small replicas of the Elephant Parade elephants, along with money raised when the original Parade elephants are auctioned at the end of the tour, will go towards the wellbeing and conservation of the animals in 13 different countries.

Some of the designs were quirky, some were modern and some were traditional, but they were all a magnificent.
