It is also completely free to enter a small A4 sized 100% donation artwork for our Wall of Wildlife (WOW).
This year, we will be supporting a small, yet extremely important conservation organisation, The Kalahari African Wild Dog Conservation Trust (KAWDCT).
KAWDCT are the only group solely dedicated to help preserve Painted Dogs in Namibia where there are an estmated 350 dogs in total left in the country. As we speak, KAWDCT are out in the field, monitoring and tracking the very elusive small number of packs in North Eastern Namibia - we will be bringing you updates straight from from Nadja Le Roux and her team as they happen every week and throughout the exhibition!
