See the VIP event recap with a benefit auction with artwork from five artists to support nature conservancy
Global Wildlife Conservation kicked off Miami Art Basel 2018 at the Island Gardens Marina for their second ever Basel event celebrating the deep connection between wildlife diversity conservation and the art world. “We are thrilled to have Miami come out to support conservation in the Caribbean. This region is one of the most biodiverse in the world, yet also one of the most threatened. The great news is that we are at a point in history where we can make a real difference for the conservation of the islands’ wildlife,” says Global Wildlife Conservation President Don Church.
The benefit auction featured the work of five artists and will supoort GWC's mission of conserving the diversity of life on Earth. As partners with Global Wildlife Conservation, The Bahamas National Trust and the Anguilla National Trust joined to help raise funds and awareness. The artwork for the auction was carefully curated to portray real animals, plants and wild places in the form of exquisite works of art.
