Elephants in Kensington

One morning this week in Kensington, residents awoke to find elephants had  invaded their streets.  Not African or Indian Elephants but fibreglass hand painted elephants by famous artists.  As part of the Elephant Parade London 2010 largest outdoor event on record, about 250 elephants graced the streets of London to raise awareness of the plight of the endangered Asian Elephant.  Charity Elephant Family www.elephantfamily.org will be selling these by auction in July.  They hope to raise £1M for elephant conservation.   You can’t miss these beautiful elephants and they certainly add interest to our monotone London streets.
