We at Campion Consultancy are all wildlife enthusiasts and have decided to run a competition in schools to help raise funds and awareness of a wonderful charity based in India called Wildlife SOS (WSOS – UK registered charity 1126511).
Wildlife SOS (WSOS), since 1995, have been doing incredible work protecting India’s natural heritage, forests and biodiversity, as well as protecting endangered wild elephant populations and rescuing elephants from lives in tourism.
To find out more about the work of WSOS and current projects, visit their website here: www.wildlifesos.org
We know that all school children are super creative and love animals, so we are running a competition for the best depiction of an elephant in any medium (either an African or Indian elephant – note ear size)!
This is a great opportunity for your class/classes to get involved over the coming weeks, as well as during the Easter break. We have included some lesson plan and family homework ideas in the attached folder, for further inspiration! After school clubs are welcome to join in the fun.
Campion’s will donate £500 to WSOS on behalf of your school, and the chosen artist will receive a WSOS elephant toy and art materials pack.

This will also hopefully include a Zoom link call, to Wildlife SOS’s elephant sanctuary in India (time difference and day depending) to link to the elephants, where pupils can learn more about these amazing animals and the work of WSOS. There will also be the opportunity for further fundraising on the day should your school wish to take part.
