Happy Birthday Robert Bateman (90)

May the 24th Robert Bateman will celebrate his 90th birthday!

After John Paige, he is the second artist in our ANF family who will reach this memorable age. Bob has always been a great supporter, participant and inspirator for the Artists for Nature Foundation.

His essay: “The best things in life are not free anymore” and an artist’s project on Victoria Island B.C. to protect an old growth forest has inspired me to start ANF in 1990. Bob and I met for the first time in 1981 and shortly after that, Robert and his wife Birgit became good friends.

Keep on the good work for nature and the earth Bob!
