Who doesn’t love elephants?! Thanks to the collaboration of nonprofit organizations – CoExistence and Elephant Family we’ve witnessed 60 Real-life-sized wooden sculptures of elephants migrating from Piccadilly to Buckingham Palace in Green Park, London. And they were just 1 out of 9 herds passing through the city. CoExistence has a goal to create and put 500 animals around the world, with specific animals for specific countries. 15 feet tall, weighing 800 pounds, these creatures are made out of long strips of ‘lantana camara’, the invasive weed that disturbs the environment, so by removing it, it actually helps to reinstate the natural ecosystem (watch video). Also 37 endangered and extinct birds have joined the herd on July 6 in Green Park. Made out of steel, clay, and bronze, by the hand of seven artists, as a result of a collab with ‘Wild East’, some sculptures are even 3-meter-tall (curlew by Simon Gudgeon).
