We took the collection on a short tour to Norwich, Bath and London. The whole collection was also displayed at the Royal Geographical Society during our Explorers against Extinction
event on the evening of 12 October 2017. We were delighted that Tom Eddison, Deputy Director & Specialist in Contemporary Art at Sotheby's
joined us on the night to lend his expertise and run a short auction for a select few pieces.
The purpose of the exhibition was twofold. We wanted to raise vital awareness about the threat of extinction to iconic species such as elephant, lion and rhino, as well as raising funds and donating resources to nominated wildlife charities and organisations. In total the auction raised over £40,000
and fully funded all of our campaign target projects with Rhino Conservation Botswana, Ol Pejeta Reserve and the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.
Many thanks to all of our artists for donating so generously and to all those who took part in the online auction.
