The Art of BAS is pleased to announce the Satao Elephant Conservation Project which involves producing Original Oil Paintings and related Fine Art Canvas Limited Edition Prints in support of the Tsavo Trust (www.tsavotrust.org) and their invaluable elephant conservation work in Kenya. 35,000 of Africa's elephants were killed for the ivory last year, the tragic slaughter being the despicable act of the illegal ivory trade. Thankfully there are wonderful people and organisations working tirelessly to protect and conserve elephants, Tsavo Trust are at the fore of such crucial efforts.
The initial stages of the Elephant Conservation Project entailed BAS making a research trip to Kenya in February, 2015. He was accompanied by Richard Moller, Tsavo Trust Chief Conservation Officer, and honorary Warden of Kenya Wildlife Services.
Further details of the Elephant Conservation Project will follow. The progress of each Elephant Conservation Project painting will be placed on this website and the resulting Fine Art Canvas Limited Edition Prints will be made available for purchase in aid of Tsavo Trust.
We are very excited about the Satao Elephant Conservation Project and especially with the aim of helping the precious endangered elephants of Africa.
