The Elephant Parade on Google Maps

The Elephant Parade

It's not often I get the chance to post a map showing the location of 250 elephants.

In London, a conservation campaign called Elephant Parade from www.elephantfamily.org, has enlisted 250 artists and celebrities to decorate 250 elephants and then place them all around the city. The aim of the campaign it to help raise awareness of the plight of the Asian elephant.

The murphyzVille blog has gone all big game hunter and has managed to track down the location of all 250 elephants, captured the elephant's digital image and posted the geo-tagged photograph on this Google My Map.

If you want, you can also view the photographs without the map in this Flickr set.
