Wildlife Photos Help Save African Wildlife
More than 50 of the world’s top wildlife photographers are using their talents for a good cause. Due to COVID-19, tourism has significantly decreased, and as a result, Africa’s national parks are struggling to come up with the revenue to maintain conservation areas. Each photographer submitted one wildlife print to be sold at $100 and all proceeds will go to the African Parks Network — an NGO that will disperse the funds as needed. The goal was to raise $250,000, but the fundraiser has already exceeded that. For more information, visit the link below.
