ANNOUNCING:


AFRICAN WILDLIFE TRUST TO HOST INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS' RETREAT TO COMBAT POACHING


Hosted by Pratik Patel ( AWT )
and Safari Legacy




Julie is very proud to have been invited to participate in this important conservation project.


FOR THE PROJECTS PROGRESS: PLEASE CHECK - PROJECT AFRICAN WILDLIFE TRUST PAGE ( on the right hand side of this page.


African Wildlife Trust, in conjunction with Safari Legacy, will host an International group of Artists retreat from October 22 - November 2nd, 2013 in Taragire National Park, Tanzania.



This retreat aims to raise awareness and funds to combat the international poaching crisis, particularly in hard-hit Tanzania, where tens of thousands of elephants are slaughtered annually.

Many renowned artists from several countries were reviewed and ultimately nine were invited for participation by AWT. The artists invited include Jan Martin McGuire and James Gary Hines II (USA); John Agnew (USA); Julie Askew (England); Robert Caldwell (USA); Paul Dixon (South Africa); Tony Pridham (Australia); Sandy Scott (USA); and Dale Weiler (USA). Jan and James were chosen by AWT as moderators due to their involvement with AWT, as well as experience in leading groups to Africa.

The artists will be hosted in Kikoti Camp, and will photograph, sketch, and paint the amazing wildlife that Tanzania has to offer. Work created from the trip will ultimately help raise funds for AWT.

Logistics and funding are trying to be worked out so that the artists can participate in the radio collaring of an elephant in Tarangire as part of AWF’s monitoring and anti-poaching patrol projects.

African Wildlife Trust is an African based NGO that was developed out of concern and spreading much needed awareness for the escalated poaching crisis in Tanzania. Ongoing projects include establishment of anti- poaching units, and working with a team of conservation consultants to focus on proactive, effective wildlife law enforcement.
