Jungle City Global
Jungle City is a global campaign which began in Edinburgh, Scotland 2011 and is moving on to West Cork town, Clonakilty, Ireland. It has the potential to raise many millions over the next ten years for Asia’s endangered wildlife.
With a herd of life-sized Asian elephants leading a community of hundreds of decorated endangered animal sculptures, Jungle City will visit the world’s most iconic cities with the aim of raising millions for their survival.
With the strong support of numerous global sponsors, both individual and corporate, Elephant Family, lead charity partner of Jungle City, is now an award winning NGO, specialising in large scale, mass-marketing events. Through the expansion of Jungle City to other global cities, we can make a difference to conservation across Asia.
To date, Elephant Family has invested £6 million to conservation projects in Asia. Large-scale projects are underway in India, Thailand, Malaysia and Sumatra. Through our fundraising and awareness campaigns, we have reached an estimated audience of 25 million and won four prestigious awards.

“We have a dream to temporarily transform the world’s cities into jungles, to fill them to the brim with iconic animals and replace the sounds of the city with birdsong and monkey chatter. Park benches, fountains, pavements and traffic lights will become perches, watering holes, hunting and grazing grounds.” Mark Shand
