If you haven’t heard of them already, these painting elephants will blow you away.
The Asian Art and Conservation Project, a New York based non-profit dedicated to protecting the diminishing Asian elephant, works with domesticated elephants to raise funds for these elephants’ welfare, for the conservation of wild elephants, and for certain surrounding communities. Employing art as a means of charity and service to humans and elephants alike, The Asian Art and Conservation Project is innovative in its vision and approach, and really worth exploring. If you aren’t “terrified” like my friend, Ben, you will most likely find yourself in awe and inspired.
