Looking for a new piece of art to tie your home together? Buying a print from Vital Impacts will give you a stunning natural photograph for your home while also supporting endangered habitat conservation efforts.

Founded by award-winning photographer Ami Vitale and visual journalist Eileen Mignoni, Vital Impacts sells fine art with proceeds benefiting organizations working to protect wild animals and the delicate ecosystems they depend on. Sixty percent of proceeds from the first sale will go to Big Life Foundation, Great Plains Foundation’s Project Ranger, Jane Goodall Institute’s Roots and Shoots program, and SeaLegacy.

On top of supporting a good cause, the art sale also has some truly unique pieces. Goodall is contributing never before released prints she took more than six decades ago. Other notable artists include Paul Nicklen, James Balog, Cristina Mittermeier, Nick Brandt, Chris Burkard, Jimmy Chin, Tamara Dean, David Doubilet, Beverly Joubert, Keith Ladzinski, Jim Naughten, Maggie Steber, Joel Sartore, Tim Flach, Carolyn Guzy, Matthieu Paley, Xavi Bou, Beth Moon, Stephen Wilkes, and Reuben Wu.

The art sale will include more than 150 images with subjects ranging from seals to polar bears to schools of fish. “Photography has the unique ability to transcend all languages and help us understand our deep connections to one another and to all of life on this planet,” Vitale tells Treehugger. “It is the ultimate tool for creating empathy, awareness, and understanding across cultures; a tool for making sense of our commonalities in the world we share.”
