David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation

Wildlife is at the heart of the recent COVID-19 crisis and people around the world are struggling day-to-day with the realities of isolation and challenging social situations.

In light of this, David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) is launching a new online #ArtofSurvival initiative as a way of using art and conservation to engage and bring supporters together during this difficult time.

Every day we will bring you inspirational and creative ideas online to access or download through our social media, website and other platforms. This will include online art workshops, learning content for children and young people, Conservation Conversations and much more.

All of our ideas and resources are FREE to access and get involved with. However, we hope that you will consider donating to our: #ArtofSurvival campaign. Help us continue funding our conservation partners in Africa and Asia and give back to the wildlife we work so tirelessly to protect.


Creative wildlife arts ideas for people isolated at home and looking for something to do either by themselves or to entertain children.


Ideas for how you can feel part of our ‘Change Maker’ family for wildlife even if you’re stuck at home or alone.


At home workshops for you to do with children and young people to help engage and learn about different animals and habitats.


Look out for our interesting ‘Conservation Conversations’ to read, listen to or even get involved with, including updates from our Head of Programmes and Policy and from our conservation project partners across Africa and Asia.


We will be running an exciting art competition on our Wildlife Artists Instagram. All artists (and non-artists), both young and old are encouraged to partake. Each week you will be tasked with drawing, doodling and creating a different endangered animal while in self-isolation. Visit @DSWFwildlifeart for details.
