Africa Alert


Africa Alert was commissioned by the David Shepherd Conservation Foundation.  The brief was to provide a high profile, fully participatory, art/education activity in London's Covent Garden to publicise both World Animal Day 1997 and the Work of the Foundation.

We chose Africa as our theme for two reasons.  Firstly, this allowed us to highlight the importance of Africa as home to some of the World's most impressive and endangered animals.  Secondly, this fitted well with David Shepherd's respected work on behalf of, African Wildlife - particularly Elephants.

Our aim was to create an art installation that not only provided an exciting range of activities for members of the public but also created an impact that lasted long beyond World Animal Day itself.  The event succeeded in creating significant media interest prior to, during and after the day itself.
