Art Auction for Animal Conservation
Auction opens in...
The Aspinall Foundation have kindly been donated pieces of art from wildlife artists across the UK which has enabled us to run an online auction, to raise money to protect our animals and support our vital conservation projects.
The auction goes live at 9am on Friday 27th November and closes at 10pm on the 4th December 2020. You can view the brochure to see all the lots available and take a look into the stories behind each piece of Art to find your favourite piece.
By purchasing a piece of art from our online auction you can treat yourself or someone you love to a unique gift but also support real, on-the-ground overseas conservation work that will help get the animals Back to the Wild.
