World Elephant Day exhibition: Survivors

By wildlife artist Dominique Salm, in support of The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT)

Monday August 10 – Saturday August 15

In celebration of World Elephant Day on Wednesday 12th August, the DSWT welcomes you to a week-long exhibition featuring a stunning collection of original pencil and red earth drawings by award-winning wildlife artist, Dominique Salm, to help raise awareness for an iconic species under threat from ivory poaching.

In this heart-warming one-off exhibition, Dominique’s remarkably naturalistic portraits focus on individual orphaned baby elephants in the care of the DSWT’s Orphans’ Project in Kenya – a pioneering programme which works to rescue, hand-raise and rehabilitate orphaned calves, giving them a second chance at life in the wild. Discover the stories of these ‘survivors’ at the Menier Gallery from 10th to 15th August.

For all artwork sales, a generous 40% will be donated to the DSWT in support of their life-saving conservation projects in Kenya.
