Villagers Hand-Knit Giant Sweaters to Help Keep Rescued Elephants Warm

The Wildlife SOS Conservation and Care Center in Mathura, India offers sanctuary to elephants who have been abuse and exploited. Due to particularly cold weather, some of the animals have also received a new wardrobe! Unfortunately, because it can take up to 4 weeks to produce a single sweater, only 3 of the 23 elephants currently living at the centre have one of their own (the rest were given blankets).

The knitters plan to continue their work even as the temperature starts to rise in the hope that they’ll be able to outfit every elephant next winter. See more images of the heartwarming project below or click here to get involved!
