Sketch for Survival 2019
At the heart of the initiative is a shocking statistic ~ one elephant is poached for its ivory every 26 minutes.
Sketch for Survival is all about the power of art and the good it can do.
Carol feels honoured to be invited to join the ‘Invited wildlife artists’, who will make up the core of the touring exhibition for this year’s ‘Sketch for Survival Exhibition/Online Auction’, between September and November 2019, visiting five different venues, with the exhibition tour finishing at the Royal Geographical Society in London on the Thursday 14th November. The Online ‘Sketch for Survival’ Auction will conclude on Sunday 17th November 2019.
Carol is giving a framed original watercolour of a Painted Wolf called ‘Tribute to Newky’ to Sketch for Survival 2019
This annual exhibition and sale of wildlife art, in aid of conservation, is part of a wider conservation campaign called Explorers against Extinction organised by UK charity The Real World Conservation Trust. Exhibiting the art collection will help raise awareness about species extinction and raise vital funds to safeguard wildlife and empower communities to fight wildlife crime.
‘Rare Event’ ~ twin baby elephants, has also been given to ‘Sketch for Survival 2019′. This acrylic and ink artwork can be purchased during exhibition tour for Explorers against Extinctions’ conservation projects.

Last year Carol teamed up to be part of Sketch for Survival 2018 with other professional artists and celebrity supporters.
Explorers against Extinction raised over $58,000, hitting their targets for the main conservation projects: $50,000 to dog anti- poaching unit in Garamba NP in Democratic Republic of Congo & over $8,000 for Sumatran Tiger Project to help safeguard its future in Indonesia. Also $2.500 was given to Sheldrick Trust, DSWT.
Carol has been on two field trips to Zambia’s South Luangwa NP and wanted to lend her support to the work being done by Project Luangwa by gifting some of her artwork, inspired from the indigenous wildlife, onto cards. The total proceeds from the card sales goes to Project Luangwa. Examples of some of the cards can be seen below the background information about the Project.
