Get up close and personal with endangered animals at wild London art exhibition

It’s rare that you get the chance to see life-size endangered wildlife, free from captivity, from all around the world, all in the heart of London. But, that's what IFAW, in partnership with Art World Conservation, is giving everyone the chance to do – and what's more, it's free!

‘This is our World’ is an exhibition being held at The Royal Horticultural Halls, Greycoat Street, London, from 4th-25th August. It’s an exhibition of 12 gigantic life size paintings featuring gorillas, lions, elephants, giraffes and much more. The artist, Omra Sian, spent over 10 years creating the masterpieces in what turned out to be a real labour of love. Now, everyone is going to have a chance to see them – the exhibition will be open from 10am-8pm every day, so there’s no reason to miss out.

The exhibition will not only be a chance to get up close and personal to these amazing animal paintings, but also to immerse yourself into their habitats and worlds. It's set to be like the IMAX of the art world!

In addition, the exhibition will be a chance for visitors to learn about conservation in general and more on the species themselves and the event will be supported by a series of talks by experts in their fields. From IFAW, our Marine expert, Sharon Livermore will be speaking on 9th August from 6pm-7pm and David Cowdrey, our Illegal Wildlife Trade expert, will be speaking on 21st August from 6pm-7pm.

I urge everyone to come along and experience this amazing exhibition for themselves. It's set to be one spectacular show!
