An art exhibition highlighting the vulnerability of animals has been launched.

Artist Emma Jane Kimsey will run her big cat exhibition at the Blakehay Theatre, in Wadham Street, during performances and additionally on May 18 and June 4 from 10am to noon.

Emma has painted a snow leopard, jaguar, tiger and other critically endangered species.

She said: "Conserving the environment has always been important to me and with issues around climate change, I wanted to highlight the vulnerability 
of our beautiful big cats around the world, including lesser known animals.

"If we do not take steps to help protect our world then these species will be gone sooner than we all think."

Entry is free but donations to the World Wide Fund for Nature are encouraged, with 50 per cent of painting sales going to the charity.
