Wildlife Art Auction:

The Jack Pilling Art award-winning portrait artist , Leigh " NOSEY" Shelton, disabled from Norwich UK, is donating his Art to protect Planet Earth. He is generously giving his exclusive portraits to this noble Cause . All proceeds from the Auction will go to Yemen's critically endangered animals via ONE WORLD ACTORS PRODUCTIONS (ANIMAL RESCUES) Charity Ibb Zoo Emergency Rescue Mission, who are working around the clock to save and protect vulnerable captive wildlife from extinction.

ONE WORLD ACTORS PRODS.-Animal Rescues Charity ( OWAP-AR) :

Dedicating her life since January 2016 to 2 Rescue Missions of iconic, rare animals, birds and reptiles still trapped and hungry at destitute Ibb and Taiz Zoos in war-stricken Yemen, Kim-Michelle Broderick, a British Queen's Guide and Founding President of One World Actors Productions (OWAP -Animal Rescues) works directly and daily with the Zoo Managements.

Endorsed by EPA/ CITES Yemen Ministry under President Hadi's internationally recognized Yemen Government, Kim's volunteer Teams have been implementing her Ground Operations using public donations to feed the animals, devise and implement Enrichments Projects, build new humane outdoor enclosures to free the animals from their cruel dungeons while giving cash for work to the Zoo and vet staff in lieu of their monthly salaries.

The Yemen blockade prevents OWAP-AR from evacuating these endangered World Heritage "Last of the Mohicans" abroad so OWAP-AR is endeavouring to keep them alive on-site where they stand for the duration of the war .

Kim Michelle has also come to the rescue of Yemen's 310 neglected Arabian Police Horses in the capital city of Sana'a, supporting stable-hands and vets in the process...as well as bringing starving Dhamar Farm animals - French Dairy Cows and Arabian Horses- back from the brink.

After mobilizing all Yemeni Authorities, international Diplomacy, the U.N. in Yemen, PETA U.S.A. and legal representatives, OWAP-AR is now urgently calling on the global animal conservation communities' and the General Public's vital sponsorship to keep these war-captives alive with more emergency relief food, water and vet care until lasting Peace is brokered in Yemen.

" How, after 28 months of Ops., can we possibly abandon these Red-Listed animals to starve once more in the midst of a brutal war?" asks Leanne Abigail Condliffe, the Colchester Event planner and passionate animal-lover, "The Planet could lose an entire Sub Species if we don't urgently save Taiz Zoo's 30 critically endangered Panthera pardus nimr Arabian Leopards and release the cruelly imprisoned Lions to a secured natural habitat at Ibb Zoo! »

« I am committed to my moral duty as a Queen's Guide to stand by these enduring animals and am rallying all animal lovers around the Planet to help us keep going for these suffering innocents ; so precious to our World ! Please combat the 6th Extinction with us ! " implores Kim Michelle Broderick. https://www.oneworldactorsanimalrescues.org/
