Elephant Parade Grand Auction
The London Elephant Parade concluded yesterday, with approximately £4 million raised for Asian elephant conservation. A live auction, hosted by Sotheby's, took place on Saturday, and Nanook sold for £9,500.
I am thrilled with the amount raised, which will help fund conservation projects supported by Fauna & Flora International and Elephant Family. I am equally pleased with Nanook's new home, where I know he will be very well looked after.
