Sketch for Survival is all about raising awareness of these shocking statistics, while also raising significant funds to fight wildlife crime.
We ask artists, illustrators, cartoonists and celebrities to spend just 26 minutes, the same amount of time it takes for another African elephant to be poached for its tusks, on a sketch of any endangered species. All these sketches are then displayed on a nationwide gallery tour in October and November 2018, including a week in Central London and three days in New York, USA. The collection will also be available to view and to bid for via our online auction site. The auction will conclude on the evening of Sunday 25th November 2018.
Many of our artists and celebrities from our successful 2017 campaign are helping us again and by word of mouth we are expecting an even bigger and better collection of art in 2018. Many thanks to the talented artists who give their time to make Sketch for Survival such a success.
In 2018 we are raising funds to buy, train and equip three operational anti-poaching dog-squads to donate to National Parks and Conservancies at the forefront of the battle against poaching. Sign up to our newsletter to hear more about the projects we are supporting this year.
