The Elephant Parade had taken over Singapore!
From November 2011 through January 2012 only, Elephant art pieces were scattered throughout the city to raise awareness about the endangered elephants. Each statue elephant was uniquely painted.
I happened to be in Singapore when this was happening (December 2011). It was fun walking around the city trying to find new ones. But the city also provided maps so that people could easily find their favorites.
There were even little elephant gift-shops so that people could support the cause and have mini-versions of their favorites :)
