It’s estimated that just over 400,000 elephants remain across Africa. To help increase that number, Space for Giants works to protect the landscapes that the continent’s wildlife needs to survive. As part of the charity’s partnership with Gemfields, Fabergé has created a diamond-encrusted locket on a chain of emerald beads that opens to reveal a miniature elephant with two diamonds for eyes. $50,000 from the sale of the one-off pendant (POA) will go directly to Space for Giants. faberge.com


Art with an eco heart

Himali Singh Soin’s fantasyscapes are raising funds for Live to Love

Groundwork is a new online art series from the Serpentine Gallery and WePresent (the editorial arm of WeTransfer). Each month, an artist takes part in an online exhibition that invites viewers to donate to a chosen environmental charity. WePresent then doubles any donations up to €30,000. Showcasing their work from now until Earth Day is Himali Singh Soin, whose natural-meets-sci-fi fantasyscapes are raising funds for Live to Love, a non-profit that supports the people and resources of the Himalayas. Next up is a behind-the-scenes look at the Karrabing Film Collective’s upcoming film The Family, which explores Aboriginal life in Australia's Mabuluk (Cape Ford) region. Funds raised will go to the collective’s Art Residency for Ancestors project, which creates a cultural heritage area in the Northern Territory of Australia. wepresent.wetransfer.com
