Support for Conservation: 

Sandra is an active member of many wildlife and conservation groups locally, nationally and internationally. Each year she chooses two local and one international wildlife conservation group to donate original artworks and limited edition giclee reproductions for fundraising. A percentage of many or her originals are also donated to 'good causes'.

Sandra insists that all funds raised from her donated paintings and prints are used for the cause and only supports groups where either ALL workers are volunteers or there are only a few paid workers. This is one of her solutions to deciding who she can help each year from the huge number of requests she gets to donate art and prints.
