Introducing LIFELINE 7 - Arabian Oryx

A conservation success story.
The Arabian Oryx was extinct in the wild due to hunting. In the 1980s conservationists re-introduced a few into the Al Wusta Reserve in Oman - the location of the last wild animal.
Now, after careful and consistent conservation work there is a healthy population of these elegant antelope.

The Ghosts of Arabia have returned.

Pink Pig Sketchbooks

 Proudly sponsored by Pink Pig Sketchbooks
"I have used Pink Pigs for years and am often asked which sketchbooks I use and why - 
 these are great quality and strong for tough fieldwork, with versatile paper that takes pen, pencil, watercolour and acrylics, even pretty thick paint holds very well.
Highly recommended." - Julie Askew

'Lifeline 3' - The Last Elephant

'An idea that came to me in Tanzania two years ago and has been brewing in my head ever since.

The closest creature genetically to the elephant is the hyrax. Somewhat of a contrast in every way. They will be our closest remaining link to the elephant, if the present poaching crisis continues and we wipe elephants out of Africa'      Julie Askew
