Sally Case, the CEO of DSWF, said: “At a time when the world’s wildlife is under such devastating pressure from expanding human populations and the illegal trade it seems fitting that we take a step back and reflect on the sheer beauty and diversity of our natural world and what could be lost if we do not truly appreciate the value of the world around us.”

 

Wildlife Artist of the Year 2016 was on display at the Mall Galleries from 28 June until 2 July 2016.
