Alton, Hampshire: Award-winning wildlife photographer, Michael Huggan, has released his African Wildlife Calendar for 2010 in association with the world renowned international conservation and animal welfare charity, Born Free Foundation.

The 12 stunning pictures and intimate portraits which appear in the calendar were selected by the Born Free Foundation team, and sales of this outstanding photographic collection will help raise funds for the charity.

About half of the photos in the calendar are, not surprisingly, of cats whilst the remainder are of giraffes, hippopotami and elephants – each one bearing the Born Free logo.

“I noticed that Born Free - a charity I have known, worked with and supported for many years - did not have a calendar of its own, so I asked if they would like to select the photos for me for 2010 – and I am honoured that they agreed,” explains Michael.

Michael Huggan’s 2010 African Wildlife Calendar – the ideal Christmas gift - is exclusively available here: It is 42 x 29 cm (A3) in size and is priced at £10 plus postage & packing (only £3 for UK delivery).
