Elephant Art

Meet Karishma, a 13-year old female Asian elephant and Whipsnade Zoo's resident artist. She enjoys taking time off from looking after her 17-month-old baby George and showing how delicately she can use her trunk to wield a paintbrush. Her paintings will be on display at the zoo's Elephant Appreciation Weekend, 24 and 25 September, fundraising for the Zoological Society of London's worldwide elephant conservation projects (title link).
