A pair of Abu Dhabi brothers who are using their artistic talents to put the world in the picture about the plight of endangered animals have won an international accolade.

School pupils Rahul and Rohan Raju have been named 2018 International Young Eco-Heroes by US-based non-profit organisation Action for Nature for their efforts to help protect endangered species – one painting at a time.

Young artists Rahul, 16, who attends Bhavans School, and Rohan, 13, a pupil at Dunes International School, have painted pictures of elephants, rhinos and other animals at risk, in addition to making objects using recycled material.
