SKETCH FOR SURVIVAL – SKETCHING A FUTURE FOR ENDANGERED SPECIES
Sketch for Survival is inspired by a shocking statistic – on average, one elephant is poached in the wild every 26 minutes. To highlight the plight of elephants and other iconic species, Explorers Against Extinction invites professional artists and celebrity supporters to donate a simple 26-minute wildlife sketch or other original artwork to their annual touring exhibition.
Artists in 30+ countries have contributed; celebrity supporters include Dame Judi Dench, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Mary Berry, Bill Nighy and Stephen Fry.
All the artworks are original pieces and sold in aid of front-line conservation projects. This year’s collection will also include at-risk wild spaces and photography.
