Endangered Asian Elephant Art Exhibition Heads To Dana Point

STUDIO CITY (CBS) — For the first time on American soil, dozens of life-size elephant sculptures will be on display in Dana Point as part of the Elephant Parade.

Dana Yarger, the Elephant Parade Ambassador, appeared on KCAL9 News on Sunday morning to discuss the parade which is the world’s largest outdoor art exhibition in support of the endangered Asian elephant.

The Elephant Parade has been held in London, Milan, Singapore, Amsterdam, and the UK.

At the end of each two-month exhibition, Yarger says the elephants are auctioned with proceeds going toward efforts to save the Asian elephant.

Yarger says the elephants on display have just arrived from Thailand.

Various resorts are scheduled to host the debut of the Elephant Parade in Dana Point. For more information, click here.
