A chance for artists to get involved in conservation by exploring first hand what is happening, why it is happening, and what can be done about it.

Led by zoo and wildlife veterinarian, writer, and educator Dr. Lucy Spelman, this 3-week trip to South Africa is designed to give artists an inside look at the ripple effect of the wildlife trade on the health and well-being of the animal being traded, as well as other animals, including humans. The focus will be four species in big trouble from the wildlife trade: pangolins, lions, elephants, and rhinos. Space is LIMITED to 7 travelers.
