One of the largest photo print fundraisers returns: PRINTS FOR WILDLIFE is coming back with over 150 globally renowned photographers supporting conservation.
After raising US$660,200 in 2020 for non-profit African Parks, Prints For Wildlife is returning in Summer 2021 with even more photographers and prints on offer.
+150 photographers, +150 outstanding limited edition art prints and one united goal: to raise a million dollars for conservation.
Against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic, Prints for Wildlife became a pioneering print fundraiser and one of 2020‘s most hopeful conservation stories. Over 120 acclaimed and emerging international wildlife photographers came together for an unprecedented print fundraiser to support local communities and wildlife in some of Africa’s most important protected areas. Together, they raised US$660,200 by selling over 6,500 unique wildlife prints within just 30 days.
With the continuation of COVID-19 travel restrictions, local economies and conservation efforts across Africa remain under pressure. That’s why Prints for Wildlife co-founders Marion Payr and Pie Aerts are reuniting to bring back their successful print fundraiser to once again support African Parks, a conservation non-profit that manages 19 parks in 11 countries on behalf of governments in Africa for the benefit of local communities and wildlife.
The second edition of Prints for Wildlife brings together over 150+ photographers, including some of the most respected and visionary wildlife photographers in the world alongside emerging talent from developing nations, with a focus on promoting greater diversity and inclusivity in the wildlife photography industry.
The second edition of the limited Prints For Wildlife sale will run from July 11 to August 11, 2021, featuring +150 photos from acclaimed wildlife photographers such as Steve Winter, Beverly Joubert, Ami Vitale, Brent Stirton, Clement Kiragu, Sudhir Shivaram, Sergey Gorshkov, Marina Cano and David Lloyd.
