Remembering Lions – Remembering Wildlife is the collective name for the series of books created by photographer Margot Raggett, who was prompted to take action in 2014 after a sad poaching incident.
She began asking fellow wildlife photographers if they would contribute to a fundraising book. The response was spectacular and Remembering Elephants, by ‘Wildlife Photographers United’ was published in September 2016 with images donated by 65 of the world’s top wildlife photographers.
I was incredibly blessed to have an image selected for this publication and be able to make a difference in our world of Wildlife.
Such was the success that Remembering Rhinos was quickly announced and launched in 2017, once again to critical acclaim. Here again I was extremely proud to contribute one of my personal top 10 images.
Remembering Great Apes, the third book in the series, was published on 15th October 2018 featuring images donated by 72 photographers and is on track to raise more funds than ever.
On 14th October 2019 they launched the fourth book in the series Remembering Lions featuring images by 74 photographers and in the first week of publication it raised £100,000 for conservation projects. An image of mine was again selected for this project.
It was one of my most mosts successful images that has contributed to worldwide conservation. It sold several times at the exhibition which forms part of the series.
It was featured in so many of the promotional aspects of the book and I cannot be prouder. Below is a few of the places it was used in the promotion of this project and conservation internationally.
Thanks you for all those that have been involved with the project and for the kind words that have been shared about this recognition.
