Art Exhibition to Save Nature: Near & Far

I’ve got a
new art exhibition opening at my gallery in Thixendale on November 7th at which I aim to raise
awareness for the plight of creatures in crisis. The event features lifelike
paintings of endangered species from around the globe. Wildlife is my life and I hope to offer visitors practical advice on what they can do to help the animals on their own doorsteps.
 Wildlife everywhere is in crisis. Here
in the UK
there are species that we take for granted, like sparrows and hedgehogs, which
could disappear altogether if we don’t do something. It’s almost Christmas and I’m hoping that visitors
to my exhibition will embrace the seasonal spirit of giving to do what they can
to help nature.
A report by
the World Wildlife Fund this autumn suggested the world has already lost 52% of
species. I will also be exhibiting photographs of endangered wildlife from
around the world, including pictures of rare desert elephants that I
photographed in Namibia
this August.
The best of
my research video into animal behaviour will also be on show, among them
engaging footage of endangered species. If I can show people how wonderful the
wildlife that I watch is, I hope they will want to preserve them as much as I
do.
I’m planning
to use this exhibition to show visitors how to protect British species via
information boards and workshops. When so many species are struggling,
sometimes it is difficult to know where to begin. But there are plenty of
things people can do in their own gardens that will make a big difference. I
hope my exhibition will show them how.
Mr own
garden in Thixendale is a great example as to what can be achieved. Since I
moved here in 1998 my tree sparrow population has flourished. Tree sparrows are
endangered in the UK,
but my regime of planting woodland and wildflowers, digging a pond and putting
up bird feeders and nest boxes has ensured the future of local populations.
A number of
nature walks, falconry lessons and birdwatching safaris accompany the
exhibition.
