Access Self Storage, of Merton Road in Wandsworth, England, has released 260 baby elephants that it was holding in storage. The elephants paraded through London this week, as part of a campaign to save the Asian elephant called, aptly, Elephant Parade.
The elephants are not alive, of course. But they are life-size. They are made of fiberglass. The painted elephants are part of Elephant Parade, a campaign being held by conservation group Elephant Family, to raise money to save endangered Asian elephants. The parade was led by Elephant Family trustee Mark Shand. Now that the parade is over, the elephants will be placed in locations all over London, including Green Park, Hyde Park, St. James' Park, King's Road, Queen's Walk, Piccadilly Circus, Oxford Street, Hamley's Toy Store, Selfridge's, Trafalgar Square, Westminster, Marble Arch, Chelsea Royal Hospital, the Natural History Museum, Greenwich, and Briston.
