A stunning collection of images celebrating Africa, by some of the worlds leading photographers will be exhibited for sale at the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation gallery in Shalford from Saturday February 23 to Saturday March 16.

Taste of Africa brings together landscapes and portraits of people and wildlife from photographers including Simon King OBE, Steve Bloom, Mark Carwardine, Will Burrard-Lucas, Jillian Edelstein, Andy Rouse and Marc Stickler.

The brain-child of the foundations education advisor and wildlife photographer, Andrew White, the exhibition is designed to help raise funds for his CycleZambia challenge, which will see Andrew and his two cousins, Seb and Dom Loram, cycle 500km from Livingstone to Lusaka this summer.

Our aim is to raise awareness and funds to support the Foundations work in Zambia, explains Andrew White. With an estimated 30,000 elephants being killed every year for their ivory in Africa it is more important than ever to spread awareness of the issues and to support the tragic orphans that are left behind.

The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation supports the only elephant orphanage in Zambia which works to rescue, rehabilitate and release elephants back into wild. It is a programme that cannot work without increased park protection or greater awareness among those who share their habitat with wild elephants.
