10. World’s Largest Exhibit of Origami Elephants Invade the Bronx Zoo

The world’s largest exhibit of Origami elephants are on display at the Bronx Zoo in a unique and colorful attempt to bring attention to poaching. The small Origami elephants were created by people from all over the United States and 40 countries, totaling over 204,000 Origami elephants – more than 78,000 on display to “save elephants from extinction by ending the ivory trade.” The display is the largest collection of Origami elephants in one place, earning it recognition by the Guinness Book of World Records.

You can view Origami Elephants through the month of December, as part of the Bronx Zoo’s Holiday Celebration, including a piece by the artist behind the American Museum of Natural History’s Origami Holiday Tree. The Bronx Zoo is located at 2300 Southern Boulevard in the Bronx.
