ARTIST AMBASSADORS AGAINST POACHING - AFRICAN WILDLIFE TRUST


 


AFRICAN WILDLIFE TRUST  HOSTS INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS' RETREAT TO COMBAT POACHING



African Wildlife Trust, in conjunction with Safari Legacy, hosted an international group of artists retreat in the Autumn of 2013 in Tarangire National Park, Tanzania.

This retreat is 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).

 
The artists were hosted in Kikoti Camp, and photographed, sketched, and painted the amazing wildlife that Tanzania has to offer. Work created from the trip will ultimately help raise funds for AWT.

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.
