This year for World Elephant Day, let’s trample the current Guinness World Records title! We’re in the process of trying to fold 35,000 origami elephants to honor the number of real-world elephants lost each year for their ivory. Visit the zoo and have some fun folding with us.
If you want to help out the cause check out the Wildlife Conservation Society website for several templates on folding elephants as well as information on mailing the elephants to the zoo. You can also participate at the Bronx Zoo where they will be holding origami events.
