Art World Conservation – Ol Pejeta’s CEO to Speak in London
Art World Conservation educates, informs and inspires people about the natural world. We’d like to think Ol Pejeta does the same. So we are delighted to announce that Ol Pejeta’s CEO Richard Vigne will be a guest speaker at the Art World Conservation event at the Royal Horticultural Halls in London, being held from the 4th-25th August.

Renowned artist Omra Sian has created life-sized paintings of lions, elephants, giraffes and other wildlife to raise awareness about endangered species all over the world. The exhibition is free, and will also host a series of other talks from leading names in the conservation field from all over the world.

Six-year-old Frankie is one of the youngest rhino heroes we’ve ever known. Inspired to support Ol Pejeta’s conservation efforts, Frankie has been working on a fundraising campaign in his hometown of Cambridge, UK, called RhinosUP. His unique idea is to create a public piece of art – a planted sculpture in the shape of a rhino, made from bee friendly plants. He aims at raising £48,000 – the price of rhino horn on the black market and has partnered with Fauna and Flora International. Why RhinosUP? Because, in his words, "the flowers will come up and the rhinos will come up from the dead".
