One African elephant is poached for its tusks every 26 minutes. That's more than 55 a day. Sketch for Survival aims to raise awareness about species extinction while also raising significant funds to fight wildlife crime through our touring wildlife art exhibition and online charity auction.
I was asked to get involved, and contributed ‘The Pink Pangolin’, drawn in 26 minutes. My piece will be auctioned along with 400 original artworks donated by artists from over 30 countries. Artwork has also been donated by, amongst others, Stephen Fry, Mary Berry, famous explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes and Oscar winning animator and director Nick Park, as well as Dame Helen Mirren and Dame Judi Dench. To find out more, go to Explorers Against Extinction.
