art for conservation

Support a nature conservation project by purchasing a print.

Wild & Free is a UK-based charity, which supports organizations and projects on a global scale. Formed in 2014, the aim of Wild & Free is to facilitate wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and their successful release back into the wild. The charity works towards:

 

  1. The conservation of endangered species of animals through the provision of grants.
  2. The advancement of education for the public benefit on rehabilitation and reintroduction to all individuals, groups and societies concerned with the rescue of wild animals, which are endangered, orphaned, sick, injured or abused and by raising awareness of standards and necessary requirements to rehabilitate and reintroduce wild animals to their natural habitats.

Wild & Free’s projects are carefully selected by founder, Geraldine Morelli. The first criteria of the charity is to understand how successful the wildlife centres are in their rehabilitation and release programs. The second criteria is to focus on a distinct project, so that donations can go directly towards a specific cause. In all scenarios, 100% of donations to Wild & Free are transferred to the beneficiaries. 

Saving Elephants with Bees

Wild & Free’s Project with AFeWis in Tanzania

Tanzania has lost 60% of their elephants in 5 years. Between 2009 and 2014, poaching and the human-elephant conflict has been the cause of many deaths.


Elephants do not care about borders. Crossing boundaries of National Parks, they break down fences, which encase farmland, and feast on the farmers’ crops (e.g. maize, beans, banana plantations, etc.). Angry and in danger of losing their source of income, the farmers set out to poison or kill the pachyderms. Yet, there is a solution in sight.


Elephants and bees are not friends. This is precisely what can save these gentle giants. AFeWis (Alert for Endangered Wildlife Species) is resolving the human-wildlife conflict between farmers and elephants by installing beehives along the borders of National Parks. This way, when elephants approach the National Park boundaries, the disturbed bees attack and elephants simply turn around, as they are afraid of bees.


Farmers do not need to kill or poison the pachyderms, as their crops are now safe from being destroyed.


By raising funds for AFeWis, Wild & Free are helping to sponsor beehives for the organization. The best part – each beehive gets named after the sponsor! 

Purchase a Print - Save an Elephant

In this special collaboration, I am offering a limited number of select prints to raise funds for Wild & Free‘s project with AFeWis. With each  purchase of a print, you will be donating 20% of proceeds to help save elephants by installing a beehive in national parks around Africa.

 

All prints of this special edition are signed by me and come with a certificate of authenticity. With a limited edition of 10 prints per image, you will be one of ten owners in the world to own this artwork.

 

Artworks are 30x45cm in size and are professionally printed on Hahnemühle Fine Art Pearl paper (285g/m2), which is made from lignin-free cellulose and sourced from trees that grow in sustainably managed forests. Prints are locally produced and individually processed in Germany. Each image is made to order and packaged sustainably.
