The Race Against Time Auction

A silent auction was held on the night, giving guests the chance to bid on a tantalising array of conservation experiences and help protect some of the world’s most iconic species.

We would like to thank our partners, Soneva, Natural World Safaris, Virgin Limited Edition, Aspinall Foundation and Reuben Foundation, for the magical holidays and all of the generous people who have lent their talents to The Animal Ball.
