Photographers donate work to raise funds for African Parks

CAPE TOWN – Prints for Wildlife together with around 100 photographers will raise funds by selling wildlife photograph prints. All proceeds will be donated to the conservation of African wildlife parks and surrounding communities who are struggling during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Prints for Wildlife is an initiative by African Parks. African Parks is a non-profit conservation organisation that provides rehabilitation and long-term management of national parks in partnership with local communities and governments. The organisation manages 18 national parks and protected conservational areas in 11 African countries covering over 14.1 million hectors.

The organisation was founded in 2000 in response to an immense decline of protected and conservational areas due to lack of funding and poor management, however, the Covid-19 pandemic has brought challenges of its own leading to the organisation aiming to raise additional funds through the Prints for Wildlife campaign to ensure these protected conservational areas, wildlife and people continue to receive the much-needed benefits during these trying times.

With around 100 photographers taking part, the photograph prints for sale are pieces of work from acclaimed international and local wildlife photographers from around the world who are all coming together to ensure the needed support is provided to the protection of Africa’s wildlife and unique landscapes.

All photograph prints are sold at a fixed cost of 100 USD excluding shipping with 100 percent of the proceeds after printing and handling donated to African Parks.
