PHOTOGRAPHIC AUCTION

African Wildlife Safaris would like to invite you to a special exhibition of stunning wildlife photographs from Kenya’s newest photographic competition, The Greatest Masai Mara Photographer of the Year.

The aim of the competition is to raise funds for conservation in Kenya’s famed Masai Mara ecosystem.

This photographic competition presented by African Wildlife Safaris and the Angama Foundation has already raised US$16,500 for six important conservation organisations working to preserve the Masai Mara ecosystem. Now we are hoping to raise more money with the sale of some of the award winning photographs.

These stunning, framed wildlife images are to be exhibited and available for purchase at special venues around the world, including Melbourne. All the images can be previewed below and any not sold on the night can be purchased directly through African Wildlife Safaris. Proceeds from the sale of all photographs will go directly to the particular charitable conservation project nominated by the Photographer.

WINNING PHOTOGRAPH
– ‘ESCORT’ by Anup Shah.

A maximum of just 2 copies of each image are being sold in Australia so you will own a unique piece of wildlife art (extremely limited numbers are being sold in other
parts of the world).

Credit card merchant fee of approximately 2% will be added to all transactions.

Every dollar you spend will help save Kenya’s wildlife.

Like most of the world’s wildlife, Africa’s big and small game alike face enormous pressures.

The Masai Mara is a wildlife island in an increasingly hostile sea. For Kenya, for humanity, the Masai Mara needs to survive to provide a haven for these wild animals. As Sir David Attenborough recently pointed out, there can be no doubt about the gravity of the problems facing our planet, ourselves and our wildlife.

With your generous support of this event we are hoping to raise significant funds to allow the various Conservation organisations to continue with their important work.

So please load up your credit card, spend up big and support this wildlife photographic auction! 

We look forward to seeing you there.
