Three iconic elephants from the national Elephant Parade tour have been offered to the Shalford-based conservation charity the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation to help generate funds for their emergency orphan elephant appeal.

Launched in London in July 2013, to raise conservation awareness, the Elephant Parade has since visited 13 towns and cities around the UK reaching around 30 million people.

“An auction was launched to sell off all of the touring elephants and raise money for The Asian Elephant Foundation but, recognising the vital work that DSWF does, they have offered us three of these wonderful elephants,” says DSWF chief executive, Sally Case.

If you would like to support DSWF’s work by obtaining one of these wonderful art pieces for your home, office or garden (the statues have been weather treated), each of these elephants is available now at a buy now price .

The DSWF herd consists of (left to right in the above picture) Razzle Dazzle by Sheara Abrahams (£7,500 plus VAT); Lily Pepper by Karen Hollis (£7,500 plus VAT); and Stop the Traffic by Christine Wilcox-Baker (£5,000 plus VAT).

You can see the full Elephant Parade at www.intuelephantparade.com.

To buy one or all of the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation herd, e-mail the team at buynow@elephantcommunications.co.uk.

The closing date to buy now is Saturday July 26.
