News and views from the front line in the battle to stop species extinction, from the deployment of anti-poaching dogs to the role of technology, telling first-hand accounts of those who risk their lives every day fighting poachers.
It is estimated that an elephant is poached for its ivory every 26 minutes. The charity campaign Sketch for Survival asks professional artists, illustrators and celebrities to donate a 26 minute sketch to highlight this shocking statistic, the artworks being auctioned online at the end of the campaign to raise funds for frontline conservation projects.
The Sketch for Survival collection comprises over 450 works from artists in over 30 countries and featuring many endangered species from polar bears to beetles, parrots to pangolins. There will be a capsule collection available to view at The Explorers Club on the night, comprising the sketches of our US artists and selected others. The collection will be on display at the Salmagundi Club on the 15-17th November 1-6pm.Buy tickets/get more info now
