We went on a safaris led by Ker & Downey Safaris and Wild Eye Photos Safaris/Conservation Safari Company. Ker & Downey Safaris really invented the film and photography safari in the 1940's and have been working to protect wildlife ever since.  Wild Eye Photos Safaris and Conservation Safari Company are equally conservation minded and specialize in using photography to promote wildlife protection. Our memories of the magnificent wildlife, both big and small, cute and ferocious, will stay with us forever.  Sadly though, wildlife is vanishing from East Africa.  Although many animals remain in protected areas, complete wildlife assemblages outside of these areas are rare.

 

To help protect and restore wildlife populations and their natural habitat in Kenya, all profits from the sale of my African photographs will be donated to The Kenya Wildlife Trust and The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, both headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya.  The Kenya Wildlife Trust was established in 2007 by a group of professional safari guides (including those from Ker & Downey), united in their dedication to the conservation of wildlife. The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust exists to protect wildlife in Kenya and is best known for the hand-rearing of orphaned elephants, so that they can return to the wild when grown.  Their websites are: http://kenyawildlifetrust.org and http://www.sheldrickwildlifetrust.org Please visit their websites to learn more about their work, and checkout their Facebook pages and "like them" to get timely updates.

 

The print prices represent the base print-lab costs plus some markup for eventual donations. If a gift, you can have framed prints shipped directly to that person. Prints of the elephants, cheetahs, lions, and giraffes would make great gifts for your wildlife-loving friends.  If you have any printing questions or questions about the images, please just contact me through this website.
