As a wildlife artist who owes all his success to the animals he paints, and consequently a deeply committed conservationist, I sometimes think that there is no limit to the depths to which man’s depravity descends. Nevertheless, one is encouraged beyond measure by the knowledge that organisations such as the Dr Hadwen Trust, of which I have the honour to be a Patron, are doing such marvellous work to educate us into showing deeper compassion to our fellow creatures.
