Thai Buddhist monks bless Greenpeace activists, community folk, elephants and their mahouts as they set off on the first leg of the Chang(e) Caravan which starts at a conservation center near Khao Yai National Park, about 200 kilometers from Bangkok. The Chinese script in the banner reads: “Save Forest, Save Climate,” and is being held by Chinese singer Xiao Wei. The Chang(e) Caravan, launched yesterday by Greenpeace, will pass by Thailand’s Central Plains, along climate change-impacted areas, to call on world leaders, particularly United States President Barack Obama, to take decisive action on global warming. The caravan is led by elephants rehabilitated by the Thai Elephant Research and Conservation Fund (TERF), and is a part of the global TckTckTck initiative.
