“Elephant Parade is a unique union of contemporary art with conservation, and plays an important role in engendering heightened awareness of humanity’s impacts upon elephant populations while also funding elephant conservation and the variety of efforts required to safeguard these gentle giants,” said Claire Chiang, Ambassador of Elephant Parade Singapore 2011, and Chairman of Wildlife Reserves Singapore.

Part of the proceeds from the two private Elephant Parade – ABN AMRO Private Banking auction events will benefit The Asian Elephant Foundation and the conservation fund of Wildlife Reserves Singapore.
