Spectrum backs Wildlife SOS auction for second year

Wildlife SOS is once again holding a fundraising auction in a bid to raise thousands of pounds in just 12 days.

BID to be WILD runs from May 11 to May 22.

Spectrum Photographic has donated £200 worth of printing credit as a prize for the second year running.

Director Hazel Watts visited the charity’s sanctuary at Agra during a trip to India.

Ever since then, she has been passionate about helping it continue its work.

“The dedication shown to animals under Wildlife SOS’ care is truly amazing,” says Hazel.

“I am so pleased we can once again support the charity’s amazing work by donating a prize to the auction.”

Wildlife SOS

Wildlife SOS is the largest wildlife rescue, rehabilitation, and conservation group in India.

It protects wildlife, conserves habitats, studies biodiversity and conducts research.

It also helps create sustainable livelihoods for erstwhile poacher communities or those depending on wildlife for sustenance.

One of its main missions is to eradicate the abusive practice of ‘dancing bears’ in India.

It also has active projects to help elephants, leopards, reptiles and other animals.

The team rescues and cares for orphaned, injured and exploited animals.

It hopes BID to be WILD will raise $80,000 (around £64,000) to support its vital work.
