Elephant Art

The Asian Elephant Art & Conservation Project (AEACP) is trying to save the elephants. To accomplish this goal, they are selling the artwork created by domesticated Asian elephants. (The piece on the right was painted by Tukta.)

The majority of Asian elephants are domesticated to work for people. These animals are losing their jobs because the logging industry is declining in some areas of Asia. What happens then? The AEACP seeks to find them other jobs, such as painting, or to improve the education of their handlers, and to provide safe and healthy lodging.
