Collaborations with world recognized artists and photographers help to raise awareness and funds for conservation. Fine art photographer David Yarrow is donating a percentage of his print sales of Kevin’s animals to TUSK, Britain’s leading African Wildlife Charity which features Prince William as its patron. New York artist Suzanne Unrein stunning impressionistic paintings featuring Kevin and his lions will go on auction this year to raise further funds for Lion conservation.
