«The Soul of African Wildlife» 2017

Markthalle, Basel 2017

Calendar Exhibition

This year, the exhibition took place on the evening before my departure for Zambia. It was a dramatic act of timing, and a wonderful event just before my next adventure began. Because of the newly expanded product selection – paper sketchbooks and graphic lanterns were offered for the first time – we were able to increase the donations by about 30% and I was able to board the flight to Africa with a fundraising check worth more than 3000 Swiss Franks.

I would like to express my boundless gratitude to the exhibition visitors and the tireless crew of helpers who supported me before and during the show. And last but not least, a heartfelt thank you to Pascal, Daniel and the team of Hinz & Kunz who made this successful show possible.

A few days later, in the summery heat of the Luangwa Valley, I gave the check directly to Rachel, the director of Conservation South Luangwa (CSL).

CSL is a non-profit organization that has been active in wildlife conservation for over 10 years and plays an important role in preserving the unique ecosystem and protecting the animals from heartless poachers.
