The aims of the Eric Hosking Trust are to sponsor natural history and ornithological research through the media of writing, photography, painting or illustration. Bursaries of up to £750 may be awarded to suitable candidates from any country once a year. The Trust has been awarded charitable status and a board of Trustees, consisting of Professor Richard Chandler, Dr Jim Flegg, Robert Gillmor, David Hosking, Robin Hosking, Edward Keeble, Derek Moore, Paul Williams and Martin Withers has been established. The Trust was launched at a major retrospective exhibition of Eric Hosking’s vintage prints at The Wildlife Art Gallery in Lavenham, Suffolk, on April 24th 1993. In addition, a volume of Eric’s black and white photographs with a text specially written by Dr Jim Flegg, with a foreword by Miriam Rothschild, was published by HarperCollins in autumn of 1993.
