Herd Immunity? For agents and 100 elephants, it’s a walk in the park…

An estate agency has sponsored an eco-art exhibition that involves 100 life-sized elephant sculptures in a central London park.

Savills has sponsored Elephant Family’s CoExistence over the summer and its ‘herd’ is named The Original Dwellers, after the indigenous people of South India who made the elephants, which can be seen in Green Park, close to Buckingham Palace.

Jonathan Hewlett, Savills’ head of London residential, says: “The whole ethos behind the Elephant Family charity is to protect Asia’s magnificent wildlife in the most joyful and engaging way possible. The CoExistence campaign captures this perfectly.  We have been supporters of the charity for many years and look forward to regular visits to the Savills herd in Green Park.”

And David Forbes, chairman of the Savills Private Office, adds: “I’ve had a long-standing relationship with this charity, both personally and professionally, it’s a privilege to be a part of the Elephant Family’s journey again. Raising awareness of such a crucial wildlife cause is close to my heart.  Savills is extremely proud to support the CoExistence campaign.”

The agency had to secure planning consent from Westminster council for the sculptures, which can be seen until July 23.
