|This group is for artists who photograph, sculpt, paint or draw live animals in their natural surroundings. The purpose is to show that animals can be enjoyed without the need to hunt them, kill them, carry out scientific experiments on them, or otherwise abuse them in any way, other than for food.|
In the spirit of this mission, we politely request that you should only apply for membership if you, yourself, subscribe to this philosophy. Anyone who applies for membership of this group and has work in their galleries that contravene this philosophy will be rejected, as will anyone belonging to a group that is involved with the hunting, fishing, shooting or trapping of animals.
We hope that you understand our principles before applying for membership, and trust that you will continue to pursue them whilst remaining a member.
This is not a political group and is not trying to preach our point of view to anyone. If you disagree with these principles, then we recommend that you do not join this group.
