A PASSION FOR WILDLIFE

I have very little actual knowledge about wildlife but that matters little. What I do know is that I owe all my success as an artist to the animals that I paint and I am passionate; I am bound to be when I have seen 225 dead zebra lying around a waterhole that had battery acid poured into the water. I have seen a tiger in a gin trap. I have seen an elephant walking along on three feet, having trodden on a land mine and blown its foot off. If the human race is stupid enough to blow itself to pieces with landmines then that is the business of the human race. Animals should not be involved. Man, in his infinite wisdom and creative ability can always write another symphony or build another beautiful building. However, once the last tiger has been slaughtered, he can never make another one. Neil Armstrong told me once, "David, as I was coming back from the moon in my space capsule, I looked through the window at Planet Earth, and it seemed about the size of a golf ball. It was at that moment that I realised how fragile it looked." It is fragile. It is the only planet we have. We have to get the message today. Otherwise, tomorrow - there won't be one. David's passion for wildlife art and conservation combine as the driving force behind the foundation is founded in 1984 – The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF).You can find out more about DSWF's ‘Art for Survival' programme - which brings together like-minded wildlife artists to help raise funds for the protection of endangered species - at www.davidshepherd.org
