For centuries, Asian elephants earned their keep by hauling trees for the logging industry.

Deforestation and logging restrictions led to massive unemployment for the elephants; many, dependent on keepers who could no longer afford to care for them, simply died of neglect. Several conservation centers have emerged in Asia. The elephants there, it turns out, love to paint. By making the elephants' beautiful art widely accessible, Novica is helping raise funds to support the elephant centers.
