OurSketch for Survival 2017 exhibition comprised over 160 pieces of artwork, ranging from 15 minute sketches to complex, time-consuming artworks donated by acclaimed professional wildlife artists across 14 different countries. We were also grateful to have the support of so many celebrity sketchers, from Dame Judi Dench, Bill Nighy and Stephen Fry to Ranulph Fiennes and Ray Mears.
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 £40,000and fully funded all of our campaign target projects with Rhino Conservation Botswana, Ol Pejeta Reserve and the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.
