Event Details

Join International Aid for the Protection and Welfare of Animals (IAPWA) at a wildlife evening to remember, introduced by IAPWA Ambassador Dan Richardson, at the Royal Geographical Society in London. A fundraiser in support of IAPWA’s partnerships to include presentations on each of the exciting wildlife projects being supported, plus the winners of the IAPWA #HearThem Kids Conservation competition. 

Wiildlife projects being supported include the Elephant Orphanage Project in partnership with GRI in Zambia presented by IAPWA Ambassador Peter Meyer. The Elephant Orphanage Project supports wildlife conservation projects focused within wildlife rescue, resource protection and community outreach and education. The sanctuary provides a lifeline for defenceless abandoned elephant calves, often the tragic victims of poaching and human conflict, from rescue, through rehabilitation to release. The orphans are cared for at the nursery until graduating to the release facility, where they continue to be cared for until they are ready for release back into the wild

The Rhino Project in partnership with ARCC in South Africa presented by IAPWA Ambassador Carla Fraser. IAPWA are supporting African Rhino Conservation Collaboration (ARCC) to build the first in a series of Rhino Recovery Enclosures. These enclosures will provide protected space where vets can move rhino into while they recover from injuries and bond socially with other rhino pre-release back into the wild, which is vital for the conservation of this vulnerable species. These enclosures will help damaged rhino get back on their feet and integrated back into social groups, which is so important for them to be healthy and productive.

The Claws Out campaign presented by IAPWA Campaign Manager and project founder Beth Jennings, a campaign against captive lion breeding, canned hunting and the lion bone trade.

There are also some amazing auction pieces including a limited edition Gillie and Marc bronze sculpture ‘The Last Three’, embellished signed artwork by Gary Hodges, an ARCC Rhino experience in South Africa, Limited Edition signed artwork by Richard Symonds, exclusive David Yarrow deluxe book and signed print, Margot Raggett signed print and Remembering Elephants book, an exclusive special one-off Mulberry Mongoose jewellery piece designed especially for the event, plus other wonderful lots and amazing artwork and prints kindly donated by Wildlife Artists and Photographers . A list of the artwork available in the auction will be available for viewing/bidding prior to the evening.

Plus, do not miss a chance to meet Actor and IAPWA Ambassador Peter Meyer ‘The Boy from the Wild’ during his book signing on the evening*.  Peter is very kindly donating a percentage from the book sales to the Elephant Orphanage Project.  Karkloof Safari Villas in association with The Boy from the Wild have also very kindly donated an amazing 3 night all inclusive stay in a Private Villa to be auctioned.

 

VIP drinks reception 18.30-19.30. Main event starts 19.30 with one interval.

Organiser

IAPWA (International Aid for the Protection & Welfare of Animals) is a UK registered charity dedicated to creating a better future for animals in need. Our first project, established in 2009, is based in Sabah, Borneo, where we have a facility and team providing a lifeline to thousands of dogs and cats every year in need of veterinary care and support. Our companion animal programmes have since developed in other Countries, including Romania, Penang, Philippines and the UK.

Our passion for all animals has also seen us develop partnerships and launch campaigns to help other species, including Elephants, Rhinos and Lions. Wherever there is suffering, we aim to make a difference and with your support we can continue to protect and improve the welfare of animals worldwide.
