I am Kachapatra, one of elephants in the Greenpeace Chang(e) Caravan.
 

Together with my friends, we are travelling from Khao Yai National Park, a world heritage site, to Bangkok to raise the awareness and document the current impacts of climate change. My friends at Greenpeace will then be taking these messages to world leaders as they meet in Bangkok. Personally, we hope to persuade President Barack Obama to attend the United Nations Climate Summit in Copenhagen this December and deliver the real change he promised. We all need to act together now to address climate change.

To ensure world leaders listen, Greenpeace has launched the Chang(e) Caravan. From September 12th to 27th, we travel 200 kilometers from Khao Yai National Park, a world heritage site, to Bangkok, in time for the start of the UN meeting on 28 September.

Along the route the Chang (e) Caravan will raise awareness on the need for climate change solutions. The Caravan will narrate stories of threatened biodiversity, deforestation, resulting climate impacts such as water scarcity, salinity ingress and sea level rise and serve as a platform to voice the demands of climate-change impacted communities throughout Southeast Asia.

Please join us at the launch of Chang (e) Caravan on Saturday 12 September 2009 at Thai Elephant Centre for Conservation (TECC), Pakchong, Nakhon Ratchasima
