An elephant for a book

We invite students to draw and/or paint an elephant (or elephants) and send it to The Elephant Minds Foundation. In exchange, EMF will buy a book that will be donated in the student’s name to the school or library they are members of. Find those crayons, pencils, watercolours or any items that will help you express your unique creativity and get started! We look forward to seeing your art work any time soon.


Our Objectives

  • Encourage students to learn about Elephants; their behaviour, habitats, and what these animals can teach them
  • Encourage students to explore ways in which elephants and people can share space where coexistence is a challenge for both
  • Encourage students to share their work and educational experiences with others around the world
  • Encourage students to help others like them
  • Support students so that they may achieve all of the above and leave their own kind and generous legacy by offering An elephant for a book
