Flush with her success exhibiting her work in London Emma Bowring is back in Lyme Regis raising more money for a wildlife charity.

She has had four paintings accepted to show in the David Shepherd Week of Wildlife Art at the Mall Galleries in London where five per cent of the sales went to the conservation work that the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation do in Africa and Asia.

Now she’s to raising money for the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust foundation - this time by selling a painting of two orphan elephants.

Emma said: “It was born from one family’s passion for Kenya and its wilderness, and is one of the pioneering conservation organisations for wildlife and habitat protection in East Africa.

“It embraces all measures that complement the conservation, preservation and protection of wildlife, and at the heart of the DSWT’s conservation activities is the Orphans’ Project which has achieved world-wide acclaim through its hugely successful elephant and rhino rescue and rehabilitation program.

“The Orphan’s Project exists to offer hope for the future of Kenya’s threatened elephant and rhino populations as they struggle against the threat of poaching for their ivory and horn, and the loss of habitat due to human population pressures and conflict, deforestation and drought.

“Their mobile veterinary unit also work in partnership with the Kenya Wildlife Service, and have helped treat more than 1,400 injured animals including elephants, zebra, giraffe, lions and wildebeest, in the 10 years since it began. A lot of the treatment needed is for injuries sustained through poaching and snares.”

Emma’s painting is of two of the orphans currently with the charity - Lasayen and Ndotto. The painting is currently on display at Emma’s gallery, Edwards & Parr in Broad Street and is for sale for £2,500 with £1,500 being donated to DSWT.

She also has prints of the painting available at the gallery, or through the website emmabowring.co.uk , and all the profits from the sale of the prints will also go to DSWT.
