Photo Gallery: Sketch for Survival
The Serengeti is coming to the North as sketches of wildlife by celebrities from across the globe are set to premiere in Harrogate as part of a campaign to raise awareness about species extinction.
Sketch for Survival is an annual exhibition and sale of wildlife art in aid of conservation run by charity Explorers Against Extinction. The collection will be later sold in an online auction. Last year’s Sketch for Survival raised £58,000 to support Explorers Against Extinction conservation projects. Contributors to Sketch for Survival donate a 26-minute sketch or original artwork of an endangered species because an elephant is poached for its tusks in the wild every 26 minutes.
2018’s contributors included Dame Judi Dench, Dame Helen Mirren, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Stephen Fry and Mary Berry. This year’s collection of artwork by celebrities and explorers will go on display for the first time in the North at the Wildlife & Safari Travel Show taking place at Harrogate Convention Centre in October.
