Photographer David Yarrow’s #KoalaComeback Campaign Aims to Raise $2 million for WildArk and Earth Alliance’s Australia Wildfire Fund
Over the course of the last 10 days, photographer David Yarrow has been in Australia documenting the devastating bush fires that have destroyed communities, wildlife and wildlands. Using the striking and poignant images that he captured of the effects of the fire, Yarrow and environmental nonprofit organization WildArk is today launching the #KoalaComeback Campaign to raise $2 million to support recovery efforts in Australia. Fifty percent of the proceeds will be directed to Earth Alliance’s Australia Wildfire Fund, and WildArk will use the remaining donations to support local organizations working on wildlife rehabilitation and habitat restoration.
Donors who make a contribution of $1,000 will receive a signed 24” x 33” print of ‘Survivor’ delivered to their homes. Yarrow’s large monochrome black and white images typically sell for upwards of $50,000 and sometimes as much as $100,000. Donors who make a contribution between $10 and $100 will receive a downloadable file of ‘Survivor.’ All donors will receive an automated email with the watermarked image alongside instructions about how to spread the message further and encourage more donations.
