Wildlife Artists Supporting Conservation
<em>Edit Conservation Project/Cause</em> Sketch for Survival  - Wildlife Artists Supporting Conservation | Geraldine Simmons
Explorers against Extinction is a unique event highlighting the threat of extinction to some of Africa's most iconic species including elephant and rhino. One elephant is killed in Africa every 15 minutes. Artists, explorers, adventurers and celebrities were asked to do a simple 15 minute Sketch for Survival to raise awareness of this shocking statistic and also to raise funds to combat wildlife crime.
Saturday, 12 August, 2017 to Thursday, 12 October, 2017

Over 100 pieces of artwork, both professional works donated by leading wildlife artists as well as sketches from celebrity supporters will be framed or mounted and exhibited online, as well as being displayed at the Royal Geographical Society in London, UK during the Explorers against Extinction event on the evening of 12 October 2017.

The evening will be introduced by Sir Ranulph Fienees OBE with Colonel John Blashford-Snell OBE who will be joined by other explorers and adventurers as they talk of their travels and encounters with endangered wildlife.  Sketch for Survival will kick off with a live auction with Sotheby's Deputy Director and Specialist in Contemporary Art, Tom Eddison.
