Sketch for Survival is part of the Explorers against Extinction conservation campaign organised by registered UK charity The Real World Conservation Trust (No 1177505). The primary aims of the campaign are to raise awareness about the threats facing the world’s most iconic species and their habitats while also raising significant funds for nominated projects pivotal in the battle to protect them.
Once again I have donated sketches for the Auction they are both drawings in graphite pencil, a medium I really enjoy using. The first is of a Young Southern African Giraffe and the second is a Young Southern White Rhino
The weblink is http://www.explorersagainstextinction.co.uk/ where you can view the Online Gallery and bid for your favourite.
You will also be able to view the collection online from 1st September and it will be sold in an online auction concluding on the evening of Sunday 25th November 2018.
