Geraldine supports several animal welfare and environmental organizations through the donations of her art. Closest to her heart is Friends of the National Parks Foundation (http://www.fnpf.org) in Borneo, Indonesia, which focuses on the conservation of orangutans and other Indonesian wildlife. When FNPF worked on rescuing and rehabilitating orangutans, Geraldine had the exciting opportunity to visit the rehabilitation centre. That experience became the catalyst for her mission to raise funds and awareness for endangered wildlife.
Stirred by this life-changing trip, Geraldine founded the “Riding for Rangas” annual charity bike ride in 2009 (biennially since 2013) to raise funds and awareness for FNPF. Riders sponsor to complete the challenging 300km distance in two days.
Geraldine has accepted many invitations to donate her works to significant animal conservation groups and campaigns such as Humane Society International, Save Elephant Foundation, ENDANGERED Art4Apes Fine Art and Photography exhibition, Sketch for Survival in conjunction with Explorers Against Extinction, Sea Shepherd, Silvery Gibbon Art Auction and Borneo Orangutan Society.
Geraldine sold her baby elephant painting "Baby Steps" at Northern Beaches Gallery in Cromer, NSW, in support of Save Elephant Foundation in conjunction with the documentary "Elephant Mother" touring Australia and New Zealand. The painting sold on 7th September 2023 for well over the asking price, where 100% of proceeds went to Save Elephant Foundation. Save Elephant Foundation, founded by acclaimed Lek Chailert, is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing care and assistance to Thailand's elephant population.
