Elephant “hunt” August 24, 2012 18:38

Melbourne is one of those cities where things are happening!  (and I’m lucky to live in this wonderful place! )

Yesterday I was in the city centre and went elephant hunting. These are the elephants I caught on my camera:

Gillian Forbes - Ranee

Kelly Spencer - Lotus

Kelly Just - Endangered Asia

Deborah Halpern - Mali, Protector of all animals

Ralf Kempken - City in Mali

Apparently there are 50(!) models of the famous elephant calf, Mali have been painted by a variety of artists and are now on display around Melbourne to help celebrate Melbourne Zoo’s 150th Anniversary. I’m planning to “hunt” them all

It was interesting to see the reaction of other people. Lots of people were taking photos, a lot of conversations were started, lots of queues were spontaneously created as people would notice an elephant!

For more information, visit the Melbourne Zoo web site. They have a map with elephant locations.

Have you caught an elephant lately?
