The Mission

To Raise Awareness and Funds in Support of Elephant Causes Worldwide.

 
 

Matthew Shapira (aka Roaming Elephant) has translated what started as a zen-like hobby of painting elephants to relax, into a worldwide charitable project using his artwork to directly help elephant sanctuaries and other organizations that support elephants both in the wild and in capativity

"May our efforts together traverse the earth, with a single aim to aid in the conservation for all living elephants, captive, rescued, and free."

Elephant Sanctuaries on five continents are receiving direct financial support from the sales of Roaming Elephant artwork and gift items. 

Educational Outreach Programs from Roaming Elephant have brought school children on the West Coast closer to elephants through participating in murals at their schools.
