Founded by wildlife artist and conservationist, David Shepherd CBE, art has always played a major part in supporting our conservation programmes. It is through the auction and sale of art, contributed by the Shepherd family of artists and a wide range of international artists who support us, and our annual Wildlife Artist of the Year competition, that we generate funds to support vital conservation projects that protect some of the world’s most endangered animals.

Each year we run the leading Wildlife Art competition in the UK bringing together a host of amazing wildlife art from around the world with sales supporting the artists and wildlife conservation. Entry is open to all artists over 17 from September to February with shortlisted artists notified by the end of April. The event, hosted at a prestigious London gallery (in 2017 this is the Mall Galleries, SW1), runs for a week during the summer. For more information click here
