300 Confiscated Chainsaws Turned Into Elephant Sculpture

Three-hundred chainsaws confiscated from illegal loggers have been disassembled into pieces and reconstructed into a metallic elephant sculpture that authorities hope will raise awareness about conservation in Mondulkiri province.

The Environment Ministry, which unveiled the sculpture on Sunday, said it would soon be put on display at Sen Monorom park.

Ministry spokesman Neth Pheaktra said the project, which cost $17,500, was intended to bring attention to elephant preservation and hopefully attract tourism to the province.
