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). The 15-day journey will arrive at the outskirts of Bangkok in time for a crucial UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention for Climate Change) intercessional meeting before the Copenhagen climate summit in December.
