The tour in 2007

Our campaign for wildlife corridors began with our first topiary elephant herd in 2007.

The life-sized, willow herd enjoyed long summer days and evenings in London's Hyde Park. They proved a major public attraction, drawing public and celebrities alike. 

In total, we raised £120,000 which we have used towards the purchase of land that links two forest reserves in Kerala. Once secured, this land will open as a corridor, freeing approximately 5,000 local elephants and other wildlife to move through safely.

People in the Parks with Elephants: Thanks to our wonderful partnership with The Royal Parks Foundation, we were also able to raise visitors' awareness of local wildlife in London and the significance of our magnificent Royal Parks that form their own wildlife corridor across the city.

Conservation Couture: Ten top British fashion designers, inspired by Asian elephants, each created a unique blanket in their own style. These elephant blankets were auctioned at our Trunk Show Party. The designers included Julian Macdonald, Alice Temperley, John Rocha, Theo Fennel, Ben de Lisi, Nicole Farhi, Twenty8Twelve and Planet.

The Trunk Show:
The perfect start to London Fashion Week 2007, The Trunk Show party set a magical scene to introduce Conservation Couture. 

The auction was hosted by Quintessentially and Harper's Bazaar in aid of the Kerala corridor project of elephant family and The World Land Trust. Our honoured and special guests included Her Royal Highness the Rajmata of Jaipur, Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, Rowan and Sunetra Atkinson, Shane Warne and Arkie Busson.
