The Feeding Tree, a stunning image of birds at feeders in winter by Suffolk artist Andrew Haslen, is the latest addition to World Land Trust’s (WLT) range of seasonal greeting cards.

This and several other seasonal greeting cards are available to buy online or at WLT Art Gallery in Halesworth. Income from the sale of WLT cards are used to support the Trust’s urgent overseas conservation projects.

Among the range of cards are two more images by Andrew: Fox in the Snow and Winter Hare. Since mid 2014 Andrew has been curating WLT Art Gallery in association with his own gallery, the Wildlife Art Gallery in Lavenham, Suffolk.

Of the gallery partnership Andrew said: “We have been supporters of World Land Trust for many years and are now extremely pleased to be able to work with the Trust on this joint project.”

Steve Cale

WLT’s range of greeting cards includes three with illustrations by Steve Cale: Hard Hunting Tonight – Barn Owl, Waiting for Spring – Hare and Mistle Thrush.

Steve lives in north Norfolk. He is a bird watcher as well as an artist and was greatly inspired the birdlife he saw on a recent visit to Guapi Assu Reserve, supported by WLT in the Atlantic forest of Brazil.

Bruce Pearson

A vibrant image of King Penguins coming ashore in South Georgia by WLT Trustee Bruce Pearson illustrates another WLT greeting card. One of Britain’s best known wildlife artists, Bruce has been associated with WLT since its founding in 1989.

Bruce regularly donates original artwork for WLT to sell to raise funds for its projects. In the summer of 2013 he was artist in residence in the World Land Trust art gallery,

Nicola Bayley

Nicola Bayley is another artist who has donated to WLT the use of one of her images for a greeting card.

Nicola’s Tiger in the Ark is particularly relevant at a time when we are urgently raising funds to protect habitat for big cats in project areas supported by World Land Trust. In India, Bengal Tigers in the Chilkiya-Kota Corridor near Corbett National Park in the north of the country will benefit from funds raised from WLT’s Big Cat Appeal.

WLT is very grateful to all these artists who have donated the use of images.
