Seen not herd!


They are adorable! About 250 life-size model elephants have taken up residence in central London. The models have been decorated by artists or celebrities including Sir Paul Smith and Diane von Furstenberg. They will be auctioned at Sotheby's in July with the target of raising £2 million to help conserve Asian elephants, whose numbers have fallen by 90 % in the last 100 years. The elephant parade can be seen in locations from Hyde Park to Harrods, from Trafalgar Square to Soho, everywhere you look! Proceeds will go to the Elephant Family charity, which was set up by Mark Shand, brother of Camilla Parker Bowels.

Mom I think you should get one for your garden, or even ship it home to put on the dock!
