Remembering Elephants

Remembering Elephants

Author: Virginia Mckenna Format: Hardback Release Date: 20/09/2016

The aim of the creators of Remembering Elephants was to produce the most beautiful photographic book on elephants ever made. 65 of the world's top wildlife photographers (including eight overall former winners of Wildlife Photographer of the Year) donated images for the project, including Art Wolfe, Frans Lanting, Jonathan & Angela Scott and Michael Poliza. Inside we follow the typical life of an elephant, from birth through to old age. The book was the brainchild of and produced by wildlife photographer Margot Raggett after she saw a poached elephant in Northern Kenya. Her ambition was to use the book to raise both awareness of elephant poaching and also to raise funds to protect the species. With a foreword by Born Free actress and charity co-founder Virginia McKenna OBE, all profits from the sale of the book go to elephant protection projects via charity partner The Born Free Foundation. So far more than GBP135,000 has been distributed to projects in Kenya, Mali, Malawi, Ethiopia and Zimbabwe.

Counting Lions

Author: Virginia McKenna, Katie Cotton Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/10/2015

An art-inspired gift that makes learning to name and explore wildlife a family adventure. Larger-than-life black and white drawings are paired with poetic texts that reveal the ways in which endangered creatures - including lions, elephants, giraffes, tigers, gorillas, penguins, Ethiopian wolves, macaws, turtles and zebras - live on Earth. Artworks by wildlife artist Stephen Walton are rendered in charcoal and give little ones the chance to get up close and personal with nature's wildest creatures. Virginia McKenna - actress and wildlife campaigner - has written a foreword which urges us to look at the beauty of these animals and do all we can to save them. A 5% royalty will be donated to her Born Free foundation.
