Close up of an Asian Elephant (chang in Thai) eating a piece of fruit before setting off on the second leg of the Greenpeace-led Chang(e) Caravan. The Chang(e) Caravan, launched last September 12, is a procession of community folk and Greenpeace volunteers that aims to raise awareness on climate change impacts and solutions. The 15-day journey will arrive at the outskirts of Bangkok in time for a crucial UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention for Climate Change) international meeting before the Copenhagen climate summit in December. Greenpeace is calling on world leaders to commit to an ambitious, fair and binding new international climate treaty, and make available necessary funds to protect Southeast Asia’s natural forests, to ensure the future of the region and its people. The caravan is led by elephants rehabilitated by the Thai Elephant Research and Conservation Fund (TERF), and is a part of the global TckTckTck campaign.
