Sales from these artworks help support Painted Dogs (Lycaon Pictus) in Africa. Fewer than 6600 of these creatures remain on the continent. Along with Ethiopian Wolves (Canis Simensis – who number only 500 worldwide) they are the most endangered carnivores on the planet. There are fewer Painted Dogs or Ethiopian Wolves remaining than there are Rhinos. 99% of the species has been wiped out by human impact during the past 100 years. 25% of profits from artworks sold will be donated to Painted Dog Conservation.

The challenges we face on a daily basis are great and seemingly never ending. However our wide ranging Education and Community Development programmes are having an impact and we have reached a tipping point where peoples’ attitudes have changed and we are seeing the necessary behavioural change that will make a lasting difference to our conservation efforts and the wildlife around us. Impoverished local villagers accepting the predation of a goat as an insignificant loss when compared to the benefits they receive from Painted Dog Conservation, from the African wild dogs themselves. A forty-strong volunteer anti-poaching unit established after an African wild dog was found dead in a snare near their village.
Such decisive action goes a long way to creating that desired for environment where the African wild dogs can thrive. And if the African wild dogs are thriving you can be assured that there is balance in the ecosystem and thus all species are thriving.“
