Elephant Parade Invades Southern California Displays In Dana Point
The elephants have taken over Dana Point, California. These life sized replicas of Mosha the baby elephant are all over Dana Point helping to raise money for elephants in Asia. (walking map of the painted elephants here)
After stepping on an abandoned land mine, Mosha was fit with the world¹s first-ever prosthesis for a baby elephant. Her powerful strides inspired father and son duo, Mike and Marc Spits, to create Elephant Parade®in 2006. As a socially-conscious business enterprise, Elephant Parade has since rapidly grown from a grassroots movement into a global crusade combining a powerful mix of corporate, celebrity and community support. Through the sale of merchandise and auction of the original art pieces, the exhibition has raised over $6 million dollars to help support the world¹s most majestic land mammals and raise global awareness of issues affecting their dramatic plight.
A few of the elephants are painted by celebrities including Cesar Millan and pinup artist Olivia de Berardinis.
The elephant parade will be on display goes August 29-November 1.
