Travels to my Elephant 2015 was celebrated by series of events that started on the streets of London and ended in the jungles of India.
Launched by Elephant Family Patron Goldie Hawn, a fleet of elephant infused rickshaws charmed Londoners over the summer appearing at parades, events, shops and hotels across the capital before being auctioned at an event hosted by TRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall. This first adventure was undertaken by scores of intrepid racers who made a wild, 500km journey in 49 rickshaws across India through Madhya Pradesh to meet Mark Shand’s rescued elephant Tara in her home, Kipling Camp.
The collaboration between Elephant Family and Quintessentially Foundation raised £1.3million for Asia’s endangered elephants and the communities that share their forest homes. Across the globe, 687 million people heard about the event and its powerful conservation message
