Londoners must have thought they were on a good one when they saw the Elephant Parade. This blandly-named event featured 258 elephant sculptures that were paraded around London to raise awareness for the endangered Asian elephant.

Artists, celebrities, and even sports stars designed the elephants used in the parade. The elephants will be placed throughout London and auctioned off in June. The proceeds from the elephant parade will go towards UK conservation charities.
