From 11/11/2011 to 12/01/2012, a herd of over 100 brightly painted life-size elephants will swarm our streets. This will be the most colourful outdoor art exhibition ever!

With various locations like the Singapore Zoo, Botanical Gardens, shopping centres, museums and other landmarks, you can be sure to bump into at least one of these colourful creatures.
You can view the exact locations of the elephants by downloading the Elephant Parade Singapore 2011 Routemap.
What is the Elephant Parade?
It's mission is to be the world's largest financial support organization for the Asian elephant, which is threatened with extinction. The open air art exhibitions create worldwide attention, public awareness and support for the cause of elephant conservation: the elephant statues never go unnoticed by the wider public and mass media.
After the exhibition all elephants are auctioned off. The higher the quality of the art produced, the more money will be raised in aid of the Asian elephant conservation projects throughout Asia.
So be sure to keep a lookout for these gigantic elephants!
