The Remembering Wildlife team have created exciting online book launch event on 15th October to celebrate the release of Remembering Cheetahs, and you can join from the comfort of your own home! This event will be introduced by Remembering Wildlife Founder Margot Raggett and, as well as a presentation of the images from the book, will include talks by the founder of the Cheetah Conservation Fund, Dr Laurie Marker, CCF UK patrons Jonathan & Angela Scott, aka ‘The Big Cat People’ and Frans Lanting & Chris Eckstrom. It will also include an online auction of some unique items including safaris, a new, original cheetah painting by wildlife artist Emily Lamb, which is going to be generously painted ‘live’ especially for our project (details to follow) and a cheetah sculpture by award-winning artist Simon Max Bannister.
As part of the launch of the much-anticipated Remembering Cheetahs charity picture book (the fifth in the Remembering Wildlife series), we are holding a special online evening about cheetah conservation and photography. Remembering Cheetahs aims to be the most beautiful book on the species ever made and as well as a foreword by Dr Laurie Marker and an afterword by TV presenter Gordon Buchanan, it includes images generously donated by many of the world’s top wildlife photographers including Greg du Toit, Marsel van Oosten, Thomas D Mangelsen, Art Wolfe and Frans Lanting.
