We believe that a business can contribute to creating a better and happier world. Unlike a charity, Elephant Parade is not dependent on donations but generates its own revenue of which we donate a large part to projects we support. We offer a concept where all our activities such as our parades, our web shop and our conservational efforts work together for our main goal: saving the elephant.
The first Elephant Parade exhibition was held in Rotterdam, The Netherlands in 2007. It was a great success that marked the start of our global expansion.
