87Beavers In Memoriam - Art Auction

Read more ...

The 87Beavers: In Memoriam art action was launched by Extinction Rebellion Scotland and the Scottish Wild Beaver Group (SWBG) to commemorate the 87 protected beavers killed under NatureScot (SNH) licence in 2019, and to persuade the Scottish Government to move beavers to other sites in Scotland where their biodiversity and ecosystem service benefits would be welcomed (and only to use killing as a real method of ‘last resort’). 

In total, 120 artworks (digital images) were submitted. This auction of the 45 original artworks that were sent in from around the world is one part of the 87Beavers art action, with other events and exhibitions planned.  You can view the artworks in the virtual art exhibition at Bamff Wildland Here.

The proceeds from the auction will go to support the work of the Scottish Wild Beaver Group, and to the Trees for Life crowdfunder to challenge NatureScot in court over its failure to make killing of beavers a genuine last resort. 

A BIG thank you to all those who contributed artworks. We hope everyone enjoys looking through them and bidding in the 87Beavers auction. The auction will run for two months, finishing on 31st January.

Mindless Killing - Beaver in Ink by Joanne Freeman
When bidding on an auction item, if you enter more than the minimum increment for an item then your bid will be used for proxy bidding. This is how it works:
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
For example:
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
