a herd of Asian elephants visit London for a few months staying in the centre of the city before congregating within the grounds of Royal Chelsea Hospital to be pampered and photographed. They were in London to try to raise money to help their living relatives struggling to stay alive as a species due to habitat impaction and mans usual cruely and stupidity. This designer herd were auctioned off and the 4.1 million British pounds raised will, it is hoped stave off the magnificent mammals extinction for the time being.
