In 2015, British wildlife photographer Margot Raggett founded the ‘Remembering Wildlife’ project, a ‘live-aid’ moment for wildlife photographers coming together for a fund-raising book.
In 2016 the organisation produced ‘Remembering Elephants’, their first book created for the series. ‘Remembering Rhinos’ followed in 2017. Now in it’s third year, The Remembering Wildlife series will be exhibiting images from their latest book ‘Remembering Great Apes‘.
The book is full of beautiful images donated by top wildlife photographers such as Tim Laman, Anup Shah, Art Wolfe, Jonathan & Angela Scott and Michael Poliza, and aims to raise awareness of the plight facing gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos and orangutans and also to raise funds to protect them.
All prints are for sale with proceeds going to great ape conservation projects via the Born Free Foundation. Similarly, the profits from the book sales will go towards the charity’s great ape conservation in Africa and Asia.
On the 18th October, a launch event will take place at The Royal Geographical Society. The evening is comprised of a conservation talk and an auction hosted by Born Free’s consultant, Ian Redmond OBE.
Guest speakers on the evening include Ofir Drori (founder of wildlife crime investigation unit EAGLE), Tim Laman (wildlife photojournalist) and Dr Cheryl Knott (primatologist). The event will then culminate in an auction of some of the images from the book, as well as a few other unique items – find out more here.
