Wild elephant populations around the world are in a major decline, due principally to poaching. The African species population alone has fallen by 30% in just the last ten years.
I sculpted The Tipping Point after I returned from a photographic safari to Tanzania. To see these majestic creatures up close and personal in their natural habitat was a life-changing experience. I wanted to create a piece that symbolized the devastating consequences our actions have had on these animals.
We need to take action now to reverse this downward trend. Help us find a suitable spot for this piece to help bring public awareness to this critical point in the elephant’s future.
