Whipsnade zoo in Luton has broken a world record with 30,000 origami elephants.
Whipsnade visitors, staff, and supporters from around the world sent over 33,764 origami elephants, helping the zoo smash the previous record of 1500.
The zoo garnered celebrity support from Olympic Rower Alex Gregory and Capital FM DJ Dominic Byrne who both sent in origami elephants.
The origami elephants took four experts from the British Origami Society six hours to count.
The zoo is waiting for the record to be officially ratified by Guinness World Records in the next few weeks.
The record-breaking exercise is an attempt to raise awareness of endangered species. The zoo's original target of 30,000 elephants was meant to match the number of asian elephants left in the wild.
