Pandas to help elephants, tigers and even mall

French artist Paulo Grangeon created 1,600 papier-mache pandas to raise awareness about endangered species. They will be touring Bangkok in March.

BANGKOK -- A parade of 1,600 papier-mache pandas will be touring Bangkok next month as part of a worldwide campaign for the conservation of the endangered species.

     Campaigning in a country that has no wild pandas at all may sound odd, but the message from World Wide Fund for Nature Thailand goes beyond just the pandas. There is a vast population of wild animals such as Asian elephants and Bengal tigers in Thailand. This latest campaign is to raise awareness for the conservation of these species. All the pandas will be offered for "adoption" for 600 baht ($16.8) at the end of the exhibition and proceeds will be donated to WWF Thailand.
