1. Support the Remembering Wildlife Book Series: This year focusing on Remembering Cheetahs… 2020 will see Remembering Cheetahs published as the 5th book in the Remembering Wildlife series. Together, Remembering Elephants, Remembering Rhinos, Remembering Great Apes and Remembering Lions have so far raised more than £615,000 for conservation projects. The series was founded and is produced by wildlife photographer Margot Raggett, who was prompted to take action after seeing a poached elephant. She started asking fellow wildlife photographers if they would donate images for a fund-raising book and the series was born. Each year the books are launched at an event at the Royal Geographical Society where supporters can get their books signed by many of the photographers and it is accompanied by a two week London exhibition.

Support Paul Goldstein’s ‘Worth More Alive’ campaign: Paul Goldstein, wildlife photographer, guide and conservationist, has raised over £200,000 with his Worth More Alive campaign for the protection of Bengal tigers.

Lockdown halted his efforts but he is determined to do it all again next year.
