With the Covid-19 epidemic, tourism has been heavily impacted in Africa by endangering African natural parks which require funds to preserve habitats. Thus, some of the world’s most renowned nature photographers have launched a project to help these structures. By donating art prints, the wildlife photographers hope to raise $250,000 for the African Parks Network.
This conservation NGO manages all of Africa’s national parks and protected areas on behalf of the government and will distribute funds as needed. Some of the best known names in photography, including Shaaz Jung, Will Burrard-Lucas and Graeme Green, are participating in the “Prints for Wildlife” exhibition, organized by photographers Marion Payr and Pie Aerts.
Each print is sold at a price of 100 dollars, with all proceeds going to the association except for printing and shipping costs.
