As a passionate wildlife photographer with a huge love for (mostly African) wildlife and photography my interest in wildlife protection increased following my various visits to this beautiful continent.
It is evident: if we want still to be able to admire the beauty of our planet's wildlife we will have to do something. Poaching, trophy-hunting or simply humans encroaching on the animals' habitat are pushing our wild fauna towards extinction.
There are already some projects I personally support - but I think I can do more. That's why I decided to take the combination of my love for animals and my passion for photography to another level.
Therefore I created the initiative wildlife4wildlife to support projects dedicated to wildlife pro-tection, especially in Africa.
And that is where you can get involved! The full profit of any sale of my art work, be it fine art prints, canvasses, greetings cards or calendars, goes entirely to dedicated wildlife protection projects.
On a regular basis, I support a very important initiative, the Wild & Free Charity.
Geraldine Morelli founded Wild & Free - Rehabilitation and Release in October 2014 to focus on a crucial aspect of wildlife conservation: rehabilitation and successful release back to the wild.

In 2018 I was appointed ambassador for the ZENWETRUST.
ZENWETRUST needs funds to fully rehabilitate the Cecil Kop Nature Reserve in Zimbabwe to a point where it can sustain itself through income from visitors, educational programmes & volunteer programmes.
For more info visit them on Facebook.
Some further projects that were supported on an ad hoc basis in the past:
