Remembering Book Set

Remembering Wildlife is the collective name for the series of books created by British wildlife photographer Margot Raggett, who was prompted to take action after seeing a poached elephant in Northern Kenya in 2014. She began asking fellow wildlife photographers if they would contribute to a fundraising book. Their response was unanimous and Remembering Elephants, by ‘Wildlife Photographers United’ was published in September 2016 with images donated by 65 of the world’s top wildlife photographers. Such was its success that Remembering Rhinos was quickly announced and launched in 2017, once again to critical acclaim. Remembering Great Apes, the third book in the series, was published on 15th October 2018, and featured images donated by 72 photographers. 14th October 2019 saw the launch of the fourth book in the series, Remembering Lions, featuring images by 74 photographers. In its first week of publication, it raised over R2,1 million for conservation projects.

All four books were prefunded by successful Kickstarter campaigns, meaning that all profits can be given straight to projects protecting the species that the book is focused on. So far, in total, Remembering Wildlife has distributed well over R13 million to 28 different conservation projects in 15 countries across Africa and Asia.
