Elephants for the ZSL Whipsnade Zoo - Origami Elephant World Record Attempt

This herd of origami elephants is on its way to the ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, in the UK.
The Zoo is trying to raise awareness of the plight of elephants by breaking the world record of the most origami elephants made and displayed. The goal is to create a display of 30,000 elephants, one for each Asian elephant left in the wild.
Elephants for the ZSL Whipsnade Zoo - Origami Elephant World Record Attempt
The origami elephants in the picture were designed by Nobuyoshi Enomoto.  The instructions can be found in the book,  Zoogami, by Gay Merrill Gross.
I folded them with 6" (150 mm) and 8" (200 mm) squares of origami paper.

Any origami elephant model will count, easy or complex. If you want to help, please mail your origami elephants to arrive before September 20th, 2014, to:
