Ami Vitale's flash print sale for World Elephant Day
Renowned American photojournalist Ami Vitale is once again throwing her support at a very good cause with a special flash print sale that ends on 12 August – World Elephant Day.
Vitale will offer signed prints, in four sizes, of Nadasoit (5-months-old in this photo) who was rescued from a well and brought by helicopter to Reteti Elephant Sanctuary when she was only 2-weeks-old.
100% of the proceeds will go to the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary. Donations to the sanctuary are also welcome with those giving US$10 or more being entered into a draw to win a Nikon D3600 camera with two lenses, a Think Tank Photo bag, and a signed elephant print.
About the prints
The prints are expertly crafted by the studio of Paper & Ink with Epson’s Ultrachome HDX archival pigment ink on Hahnemuhle’s Sugar Cane Smooth archival paper which sources its material from sustainable resources.
About the sanctuary
Reteti Elephant Sanctuary is the first ever community-owned and run elephant sanctuary in Africa. It provides a safe place for injured and orphaned elephant calves to heal so that they can be returned back to the wild. The orphaned elephant, like Nadasoit, that are cared for by the Samburu community, are symbols of a new wave of thinking about wildlife and the environment that goes far beyond traditional conservation methods and dives deeper into the core value of what nature represents.
