Elephants and their mahouts take Thai Buddhist monks to the venue for the send of blessing for the Greenpeace Chang(e) Caravan. 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 involving a growing number of national and global organizations in support of a single goal: to mobilize civil society and to galvanize public opinion in support of transformational change and rapid action to save the planet from dangerous levels of climate change.
