Celebrating Africa's wildlife, contributing towards its care.
Each artwork, each story, each animal is unique. Sold in aid of conservation.
ArtforWild is a project that celebrates spectacular wildlife, while contributing towards its conservation. Each artwork, each story, each animal is unique – highlighting the immeasurable value of the continent’s creatures and our responsibility towards their care.
Artforwild supports wildlife organizations concerned with the rescue, care and release of orphaned or injured animals. We do this through fundraising and awareness, using our unique, original artwork to connect with nature’s ambassadors, linking them with ways that they can make a difference. Our dramatic and emotional photographs, intimate close-ups showing the animal’s unique personality, vulnerability and beauty, also document their touching stories of survival. Our hope is that these photographs would evoke a connection between the subject and the viewer, creating compassion, promoting the urgency of the conservation cause and compelling people to act.
The images taken are sold to raise funds for the animals whose stories they document and to create awareness and support for both the animals themselves and the extraordinary people and organisations helping them. All proceeds from the sale of the photographs go to the care and conservation of the animals documented.
Mireille embarked on a journey from Germany to the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary in Kenya to capture the courageous and majestic elephants and the local people committed to giving them a future that is wild and free.
ArtforWild is made up of Mireille Ockenfels and Nicole Freitag, both German and passionate conservationists.
The ArtforWild project is a testament to the power of art to change the world. Through Mireille’s stunning photography and artwork, Art for Wild is raising awareness and support for the protection of wildlife and their habitats.
Conservation is driven by passionate people who deeply value wildlife and the beauty of nature. Without animals, what would the earth be?
At ArtforWild, we believe it is the passionate refusal to consider this outcome that drives us. We formed this organization because we feel strongly about using our skills and networks to raise funds and awareness for wildlife conservation.
We partner with experts and organizations who share our passion for wildlife. Our focus is on making the biggest possible impact for every single animal, because they all represent the significance of just one tiny individual - as reflected in our photographs. We believe that the smallest rhino means hope for the entire species.
By purchasing a unique artwork from our collection, 50% of the proceeds will go towards supporting your favorite orphan animal. Alternatively, we can partner with your company to aid in conservation efforts.
