AWE stands for Artists - Wildlife - Entrepreneurs. We are an organization that is focused on saving endangered species and the Louisiana Coast. We are also known as the Krewe of AWE and parade during Mardi Gras as Great Tusker Elephants.
We have erected a 16' tall elephant in Kenner near Divine Mercy Church.
