Our Charities

The ones who are actively making a difference.

Through our printmaking we are promoting the work of grassroot charities who are focused on supporting some of the most vulnerable animals across the globe.

Strong, reliable partnerships are key. We research and carefully consider each species-specific charity, to ensure 20% of print proceeds directly go towards the protection of the animal.


The RSPB is the UK’s largest nature conservation charity, inspiring everyone to give nature a home and secure a healthy environment for wildlife.

Donations from our Albatross artwork go to The Albatross Task Force – an international team of seabird bycatch mitigation experts set-up by the RSPB and BirdLife International – on a mission to reduce seabird bycatch by 80% in some of the deadliest fisheries for albatrosses. These donations help the RSPB and BirdLife International make trawl and longline fisheries safer for seabirds across the world, saving thousands of albatrosses from a needless death each year.

The Qualities We Look For

We understand that strong partnerships are key. Here are some of the qualities we look for in our Partner Animal Charities.

Species Specific

Partner charities specialise in working with a specific animal species to ensure the money goes to the protection of its future.


Each charity must uphold a sustainable practice when helping species to ensure no further harm to both the surrounding environments and the animals.


Local community-based work is often the key solution to dealing with conservation issues that are effecting endangered species and their eco-systems.
