Elephant parade events

Elephant Parade is a social enterprise and runs the world’s largest art exhibition of decorated elephant statues. Created by artists and celebrities. Thus Each Elephant Parade statue is a unique art piece. International cities always exhibit the life-size elephants and raise awareness for the need of elephant conservation.

History

2006 was the first elephant parade event by Marc Spits and his son Mike. The inspiration came from Marc Spits’ visit (while logging in Myanmar) to the elephant hospital in Thailand, which constructs prosthetic legs for elephants that encounter landmines. There he saw Mosha, a baby elephant who lost her foot when only seven months old. Thus the idea of the event came to existence.
