Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square and Reignwood Cultural Foundation Partner With Elephant Family

Published on : Tuesday, August 13, 2019

This summer, Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square welcomes a family of beautifully sculpted elephants created in partnership between Elephant Family and The Real Elephant Collective, to the Ten Trinity Square Lobby and Rotunda Bar and Restaurant, in support of the Coexistence Fund.

 

Made from lantana camara – a weed that destroys the forest habitat – the elephants have come all the way from the jungles of Southern India and have been created to demonstrate the importance of human-wildlife coexistence. Each sculpted model is based on a real-life elephant and has been skilfully honed by a team of artisans living in the same landscape. This global exhibition will create a sustainable livelihood for local communities, clear forests of a highly problematic weed and aim to build a USD 10 million fund for human wildlife coexistence projects across Asia.

 

Massive loss of habitat has caused numbers of the iconic Asian elephant to plummet by 90 percent in the last 100 years, earning them an unwanted place on the IUCN Red List. Elephant Family and The Real Elephant Collective have founded the Coexistence Fund, all proceeds from which will fund conservation projects across Asia.

 

Reignwood Group, a Chinese investment company, is the proud developer of Ten Trinity Square. The Reignwood Culture Foundation was created in 2011 by Dr Chanchai Ruayrungruang for preservation, promotion and development of cultural heritage between East and West. Reignwood Group strongly believes the Elephant Family partnership is an excellent example of East meets West via cultural and environmental exchange.

 

Four Seasons is proud to be supporting Elephant Family, showcasing the exquisitely decorated elephants to raise awareness of the fund and provide a gentle reminder that there has never been a more urgent need to protect this species from extinction.

 

Guest and visitors will be able to get up close to the elephants and share their photos with the hashtags #coexistence #elephantfamily #therealeleco #elephantconservation to help spread awareness of the plight of Asia’s elephants.
