Marine wilderness Charity

£1 300 has been raised through the sale of prints, donations and a charity night where the painting Porthcothan 17:50 was raffled along with other prizes. I have raised £20 000 independently and the total is intended for conservation work in South africa.

All funds raised are being placed in a charity bank account with the objective of using this to buy land.

The objectives are:

1 To raise money to buy land on the coast to be managed as conservation areas and used for education and conservation work.

2  Develop projects to help marine wilderness conservation and provide opportunities for people to help with conservation in Africa where their efforts will be productive in dealing with real issues, their skills and abilities will be productively utilised and their help is appreciated and respected.

3 Continue developing an education programme that informs people about the problems conservationists in South Africa are facing up to and through outings into the outdoors encourages an awareness and appreciation of wild areas and wildlife.

See conservation update - May to Aug 2018 - Patagonia talk (Manchester) & charity night (Doghouse - St Merryn)

If we do not manage to meet our objectives the funds raised will be given to an organisation or organisations doing similar work.

Prints are for sale to raise funds - Painting prints page

In the past my paintings have been used to raise money and awareness for conservation through various organisations - Paintings for wildlife

At meetings with people from Plymouth University and Rhodes University (SA) I have discussed plans for working with international students to raise awareness and funds.

Students and volunteers from various groups are also keen to help with education and managing land for conservation.
