The elephants await your arrival. Come and walk amongst the herd, feel their majesty and peacefulness. Listen to the birdsong in the trees and be part of their ancient world.  Stand with the matriarchs leading their families, touch their immense forms and be touched by them. The planet is our home and theirs. The herd are here to tell their story of coexistence. That there is room for all of us on this planet.

We hope this exhibition reminds us of the awe we feel when in the company of wild, free animals and inspires us to better share our world with them.

— Shubhra Nayar & Ruth Ganesh, Creatives

#CoExistence

As the herd make their way around the globe, they will tell the story of our over-populated planet, the effect of human encroachment on wild spaces and the inspiring ways we can coexist with all the other living beings that make our world magical – from tigers and orangutans to nightingales and elephants.

Meet the herds

“The fact is that no species has ever had such wholesale control over everything on earth, living or dead, as we now have. That lays upon us, whether we like it or not, an awesome responsibility. In our hands now lies not only our own future, but that of all other living creatures with whom we share the earth.”

— Sir David Attenborough
