Art & Photography Supporting Conservation
The Universal Language of Art
Art and photography helps us to bring the issues and themes of conservation vibrantly to life while helping to raise vital funds for our projects. It can encourage empathy, inspire action and spark debate about a wide range of conservation topics.
We work with artists, photographers and makers all over the world to represent diverse styles. We showcase the work of up and coming artists and encourage children to express themselves through the medium of art.
We are proud to work with some of the world’s leading artists – their pieces provide a powerful call to action.
Sketch for Survival
Sketch for Survival is one of our keystone fundraising initiatives. Art and photography exclusively featuring threatened species and at-risk wild spaces is exhibited at prestigious venues to generate profile and funds for our project partners, and to raise public awareness about a range of integral issues.
Professional, amateur and celebrity artists from more than 90 countries have contributed to our collections.

Working with Artists
We work with artists in many different ways. It is particularly important to us to give new artists a platform to showcase their art. We have formed lasting partnerships with many establised professional artists – some choose to donate a percentage of sales, or funds from a specific piece/collection or print run to our cause while others support Sketch for Survival annually by donating a single piece in the knowledge 100% of the proceeds will benefit our projects.
We also work with different artists to produce special collections which are sold on a 50/50 basis, as well as commissioning bespoke pieces for exhibition/auction. Please do get in touch if you are keen to support us with your art.
In November 2021 selected pieces from our Sketch for Survival collection were exhibited at the COP26 Climate Summit in Glasgow, including a display in the Leaders’ Lounge.
Artworks which were on display at COP26 are loaned out to our corporate supporters for display in boardrooms and reception spaces. They are also used at events.
We have also been invited to exhibit at the Palace of Westminster.
