Explorers Against Extinction is a wildlife conservation campaign organised by registered UK charity the Real World Conservation Trust (UK charity No 1177505). The primary aims of the campaign are to raise awareness about the threats facing the world’s most iconic species and their habitats while also raising significant funds for nominated projects pivotal in the battle to protect them.
Every year it runs the Sketch for Survival initiative, asking professional artists and celebrities for a 26-minute sketch to highlight the shocking statistic that an elephant is poached every 26 minutes on average in the wild. It also runs the SFS Introducing free-to-enter competition allowing any artist to support the campaign and have the opportunity to have their artwork featured on the national tour and be crowned Artist of the Year. In 2019 the initiative was supported by over 500 artists from 30+ countries, as well as celebrities including Dame Judi Dench and Sir Ranulph Fiennes.
