Astrid Harrisson is honoured to support Wild Welfare as their affiliated photographer. A partnership such as this reflects Astrid's personal commitment to wildlife and to raising awareness of the beauty and sentience of wild animals.
Regular donations of work, photography and sales proceeds help Wild Welfare continue to grow. Wild Welfare's vision statement outlined below, and more information is available on their website here.
Astrid's love of animals extends to all corners of the natural world, and it is with pleasure that she shares her close encounters with some of the world's wildest and rarest animals in a modest but growing collection of special edition prints. Out of admiration for the pioneering conservation research done by WildCRU at Oxford, and in the hope that good can come from the tragic death of Cecil the Lion, that she launches the collection with “Lion” - released (August 2015).
£20 from your purchase will go directly to WildCRU.org to support the Hwange Lion Project run by WildCRU’s David Macdonald and Andrew Loveridge.

Since 2009 Astrid has exhibited at annual Charity Event Art For Youth London. This is an astounding art show held in the City of London, showcasing artists from around the world. The event raises money for Charity UK Youth, a leading national charity that delivers non-formal education opportunities for young people aged 9-25 in the UK.
UK Youth's mission is "to work hand in hand with young people – and the dedicated organisations supporting them – to develop the skills, belief, courage and leadership to build a bright future."
