‘Frog Art’ Auction Captures Celebrity Imaginations

The Living Rainforest will host a celebrity art auction next month as part of its ‘Year of the Frog’ initiative to raise awareness and funds for amphibian conservation work in Madagascar and elsewhere.

A range of artwork, including watercolours, photographs and animation by celebrities including Paul Daniels, Chris Tarrant and Adam Hart-Davis, will be up for auction as part of the charity’s campaign.

This campaign is supported by The European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA) and Sir David Attenborough, who are urging zoos and animal centres to consider ways to make breeding facilities for amphibians more successful.

Director Karl Hansen said, “The auction has certainly captured the imagination of the celebrity artists who are taking part, and we hope that this in turn will generate more awareness of the plight facing frogs worldwide. Those who bid in the auction will have a chance to win a unique piece of frog artwork and contribute to this worthwhile campaign.”

The Living Rainforest hopes to raise £10,000 as part of its ‘Year of the Frog’ initiative to fund vital amphibian research, education and conservation activities in Madagascar and the UK.
