Julie Brunn achieved a fine art degree from Birmingham School of Art in 2000 before undertaking a career in graphic design. With her love of animals, her career shifted to becoming a keeper at Longleat Safari and Adventure Park in Wiltshire, England, and later, Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre in Dorset, England. Starting a family gave Brunn the chance to rediscover her painting talents, so she began painting what she loves—animals and wildlife. Drawing on her prior experience working with exotic animals, Brunn is able to capture the characters and personalities of her subjects. Julie Brunn is an award-winning artist. She was a finalist for David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year in 2018, 2019, and 2021. She was also featured in Artists for Painted Dogs’ fundraising exhibition in 2021.
Wildlife ACT is a non-profit organization that was established in South Africa in 2010 with a vision to save Africa’s iconic and endangered species from extinction, thereby enabling broad-scale biodiversity conservation. Through strategic partnerships and sustainable funding models, the organizations mission is to implement professional and strategic monitoring and research to enable and inform effective conservation management of wildlife; identify and develop programs within surrounding communities to support wildlife conservation; secure existing protected areas and support range expansion of African wildlife.
Wildlife ACT’s vulture conservation program works towards the following three main objectives: population stabilization and habitat protection, education and community conservation, and improved advocacy.
They believe that partnerships are crucial to effectively carry out the work required in this space, and that partnerships bring stability and consistency of approach with the benefits of continuity. As active members of Project Vulture, the Zululand Vulture Project, the Bearded Vulture Task Force, and the South African National Vulture Task Force, these objectives and the work that Wildlife ACT does to achieve them are guided by the Multi-species Action Plan to conserve African-Eurasian Vultures (Vulture MsAP), and contribute to the Biodiversity Management Plan for Vultures in South Africa.
Proceeds from the sale of artworks made by the featured endangered animals will go towards supporting their respective partner sanctuary and the important conservation work they do. Proceeds from the sale of Andreas Deja’s wildlife-inspired artwork will benefit The Walt Disney Family Museum’s educational initiatives, including the At-Promise Youth Animation Academy.
