SKETCH FOR SURVIVAL

Explorers against Extinction 2019, featuring Sketch for Survival

For the second year running, Wildlife & Safari Travel Show is proud to support Explorers against Extinction, an annual conservation campaign championing responsible travel and working to safeguard wildlife and wild spaces.

Visitors to this year’s show will be able to view a capsule collection of the charity’s innovative Sketch for Survival touring wildlife art exhibition, featuring original artworks donated by professional artists and celebrity supporters including the likes of Dame Judi Dench, Stephen Fry and Sir Ranulph Fiennes. 

Plus! Don’t miss the new Focus for Survival Photography Exhibition with images donated by Levison Wood, Gordon Buchanan, Margot Raggett, Simon Reeve, Nic Dyer and more!

Sketch for Survival – 26 minutes to make a difference

Explorers against Extinction asked wildlife artists and celebrities to help them raise awareness about the illegal wildlife trade and threat of species extinction by donating a 26-minute sketch or other original artwork of an endangered species, because an elephant is poached for its tusks in the wild every 26 minutes.

All funds raised from the auction of the collection in November support important frontline projects ranging from anti-poaching initiatives to wildlife translocations.

Last year over £58,000 was raised.

Other features of this year’s campaign include:

  • Focus for Survival – inspirational wildlife images from the world’s leading photographers;
  • Sketch for Survival Introducing – wildlife artworks by up and coming artists. Browse and buy artwork from the pop-up Affordable Art Gallery;
  • ‘Young Explorer’ bursary and mentoring programme – find out more about our 2019 recipient’s expedition.
