Coinciding with a recent flurry of international activity concerning elephant preservation initiatives, the Resorts of Dana Point are hosting the world renown Elephant Parade exhibit until November 17, 2013. Inspired by Mosha, an Asian elephant in Thailand which lost her leg after stepping on a landmine, father and son Marc and Mike Spits created the traveling exhibit in 2006 to raise money and awareness of the plight of Asian elephants.
Visiting Southern California on their first stop in the United States, the Elephant Parade is a remarkable artistic achievement honoring the world's largest land mammals. Each elephant has been painted in a unique theme chosen by its artist. The entire exhibit is free for public viewing. At the conclusion of the viewing period, the statues will be publicly auctioned and all proceeds donated to elephant conservation efforts.
