Have you ever wanted to get close to a lion, a leopard or a gorilla?

Getting close to these magnificent creatures, who are at risk, and in danger of being lost,

can come with significant ethical constraints.

Exquisite wildlife sketches are a pathway to making that connection happen.

Endangered species are being beautifully drawn and made into limited edition prints

by renowned wildlife artist David Dancey-Wood.

Witnessing endangered species in the wild is creating more harm than you might think.


Even eco-tourism has disrupted and eroded wildlife eco-systems – creating less vegetation and destroying animal habitats; putting them in danger of being lost forever.

That may give us second thoughts when wanting to see these animals in their natural surroundings.

And although Zoos try their best to take good care of their wildlife,

animals may sometimes become deprived of their natural social structures and companionships.

There is a better way to experience these threatened animals.

Graphite wildlife artist, David Dancey-Wood, captures the very essence and soul of these beautiful creatures. This exceptionally talented artist has also had roles in several wildlife conservation projects around the world – allowing him to capture through his medium wildlife individuals in their pure states, where they belong - in the wild.

Graphite animal prints allow an avenue for an ethical encounter.

Sadly, these animals have been slowly declining over the past 50 years. The dramatic increase in the human population over the years has slimmed the gap between the wild and the urban – bringing endangered species into urban habitats where they do not belong.

“One touch of nature makes the whole world kin”

-William Shakespeare


“To survive today, other animals must endure global warming, pollution, and fewer habitats. More tragically, they must endure the silence of human hearts.”

- Anthony Douglas Williams

Eco-tourism, climate change, pollution, and poaching are the key players

working against them, not to mention Deforestation.

Areas of tropical forests are left decimated to make room for agriculture. Animals are

losing their habitats, homes, and food, leaving them with nowhere to go.

Sea turtles have been particularly affected

by poaching, climate change, plastics in the ocean, and coastal developments

leaving them with nowhere to lay their eggs.


Good things are on the horizon though for endangered species,

and wildlife artist David Dancey-Wood may still have many more years to draw his passion.


2021 is being known as the year of change. Dramatic efforts are being made

by governments around the world to tackle climate change and pollution – slowly

restoring the natural habitats and eco-systems that endangered species inhabit.
