All 75 prints have been individually signed and numbered. An additional 25 prints will be made available if there is sufficient interest 

AN ARTIST IS donating half of the profits from sales of an exclusive print to a charity which is famous for its SOS Puffin project.

Avian artist Tori Ratcliffe, who is based in Edinburgh, aims to raise a minimum of £1,175 for the Scottish Seabird Centre in North Berwick, Scotland, through the sale of 75 limited edition prints of Little Puffin. To date, a total of 41 have been sold.

Funds raised will help the centre in its charity mission to engage the public to better understand and care for wildlife and the environment. The conservation charity’s work incorporates educational programmes, including working with schools and young children, with practical conservation work through projects such as SOS Puffin, which helps to reduce invasive plants that are threatening local puffin colonies on the islands in the Firth of Forth.

Laura Adamson, marketing manager for the Scottish Seabird Centre, said: “Tori’s print is stunning and to receive donations from the sales is just brilliant.

“A huge thank you to Tori and to all those who have bought a print so far.”

She continued: “The Scottish Seabird Centre has a long association with creativity, believing in the importance of art to communicate conservation messages and engage visitors in vital environmental issues.”
