Author and father of the Prime Minister BORIS JOHNSON, STANLEY JOHNSON, Parliamentary Conservative candidate for Richmond Park and North Kingston and former Tory candidate for Mayor of London ZAC GOLDSMITH and Actor PETER EGAN take a selfie during the unveiling of life-sized herd of 21 bronze elephants at Marble Arch.
Children unveil a herd of 21 bronze elephants at Marble Arch. The sculpture is the largest such depiction of an elephant herd in the world and is intended to draw attention to the plight of this species that could be extinct on current trends, by 2040. Each elephant in the sculpture is modelled after a real orphaned animal currently in the care of the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Left behind by poachers and other sources of human-wildlife conflict these animals have been raised by the trust in an effort to secure the future of the species. The herd will be displayed until 4 December 2020. Photo credit: Dinendra Haria/LNP
