Sketch for Survival will be at this year's Luxury Travel Fair, co-located on the ground floor, for the first time, with Spirit of Christmas.
We are delighted to announce that Explorers against Extinction will be the fair's official charity in 2018.
You can also meet the Real Africa team who will be exhibiting at the Luxury Travel Fair on stand A7. Come along and discuss your travel plans for next year.
What you can expect at this year's show
Fabulous speakers in the Travellers' Tales theatre relax in the wonderful Louis Roederer Champagne Bar, eat lunch in Mossiman's Restaurant, and if that isn't enough and you still have energy you can visit Spirit of Christmas which is co-located at Olympia during the course of the fair - a great place to do all your Christmas shopping.
SKETCH FOR SURVIVAL
26 MINUTES TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Sketch for Survival is an integral part of our Explorers against Extinction campaign. This touring wildlife art exhibition celebrates some of the world’s most loved wildlife, with the help of acclaimed professional artists and celebrity supporters including Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Dame Judi Dench, Stephen Fry, Mary Berry, Dame Helen Mirren, Richard E Grant and Frederick Forsyth. Our artists have captured some of their favourite species in a series of wonderful 26 minute sketches along with beautiful illustrations and other artworks.
The collection can be viewed during a 20 day public exhibition tour across seven different venues this autumn before being auctioned. All profits from the auction of artwork goes directly to support Explorers against Extinction projects. More info at explorersagainstextinction.co.uk
Also on display during the exhibition will be a huge elephant wall mosaic made up entirely of photographs of dogs with their owners, including celebrity supporters and rangers. The mosaic, created specially for Selfie for Survival celebrates the extraordinary powers of dogs while raising awareness about the vital role of anti-poaching dogs working on the frontline of conservation.
