My friend HeWhoWalksWithTigers has been offered a full internship with FREELAND Foundation, a human/wildlife trafficking non-profit in Thailand, to help them in tiger and elephant conservation, complete with on-the-ground assistance to field teams.

In order to do this, he is holding a fundraiser to raise enough money to donate at least 6-months of his time in Bangkok.

He is offering prints of his beautiful photos, all the way from "Polaroid" style photos that are $1 each to $20 calendars (featuring your choice of 12 photos) and 11" X 14" prints.

Additionally, from now until November 27th, I will also add a headshot ACEO card (art trading card) of the character or animal of your choice for anyone who donates or purchases prints worth $25 or more! This is slightly more than my usual commission rate, but please keep in mind that you will also be receiving some fantastic animal photos and journal features from several DA members. Plus, 100% of the money will be going toward helping FREELAND.

Please read HeWhoWalksWithTigers's journal here to find out more information about his conservation work and fundraiser: hewhowalkswithtigers.deviantar…

And a small sampling of some of his photography:

Not only his passion but the passion of the animals. I have a print located near my head so when I wake up I get to stare at this beautiful cat that almost seems like it gleams in the picture. It is really inspiring!

If I could get an ACEO of my char. Cruelest One that would be great! He's a black tiger with blue eyes (my icon), there are other ref's here:

Ha ha, I wish! Sadly, I can't even leave Canada right now, since I'm in the process of getting my residency here (if I leave, they'll throw out my paperwork, and I would have to start again :X)

But I am hoping that my friend *HeWhoWalksWithTigers will be able to make it there! He's so passionate about tigers. I know he'll be able to do some great things if he goes. :)

This part confuses me a bit. You mean you're going there for six months too?

Not a problem. So he's being offered the job, but he's got to pay his own housing and travel and stuff?
Reply
:iconmoonsongwolf:
MoonsongWolf Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2011
Yeah, that's pretty much it. Since it's an internship, he's basically volunteering his time for free to the organization, so he has to pay his own way out.

Hey, thanks for getting involved with this!

I got my new Nat'l Geographic today and found out the latest tiger-count.
It wasn't good.


I'm not sure if I understood- you're going to work with them in Bangkok?
I'll definitely consider donating $25 or more :)

:iconmoonsongwolf:
MoonsongWolf Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2011
Oh, I need to pick up that copy of NatGeo (used to have a subscription to it, but haven't renewed it since I moved to Canada). I read part of the article online about the tiger that was murdered in a zoo... it was so heart-breaking.

Ha ha, I did make a typo in my journal. It's *HeWhoWalksWithTigers that will be going to Thailand (hopefully), not me. I'm just trying to help him out, because I know how passionate he is about these cats. I know he'll be be able to do great things if he gets this internship! :D

I would love to have an ACEO from you, maybe after I get some more commission money. it's so worth it. :'D

So if I donate $25+ do you need me to screenshot the transaction or something?

MoonsongWolf Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2011
Nah, *HeWhoWalksWithTigers is going to send me a list of everyone who buys something from him/donates to him for the next week, so you don't have to worry about screencapping! Just make sure that you note him or include your DA username in your payment so that he knows that it's from you! :D I really do hope that he'll be able to reach his goals. It's a great opportunity for both him and tigers.

Reply
:iconmoonsongwolf:
MoonsongWolf Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2011
Either one! It can be purchased items or a regular donation, since all proceeds go to the same cause... although I obviously recommend the photos, as he has some that are just gorgeous. :) Ha ha, thank for letting me know that it was worded oddly. I'll try to reword it to be a bit more clear.
