Poznati britanski fotograf Tim Flach dve godine proveo je snimajući staništa ugroženih životinja.
Rezultat njegovog rada je redak uvid u živote ugroženih vrsta, koji je ujedno i dobar podsetnik na sve ono što možemo da izgubimo i možda već ove godine.
Na slikama su poznate vrste poput polarnog medveda ili snežnog leoparda, ali i egzotična stvorenja kojih je svakim danom sve manje.
Neke vrste su na putu izumiranja zbog uništavanja staništa, druge su ubile lovokradice zbog prodaje na crnom tržištu, dok se neke bore sa još strašnijim iskušenjima.

Common Hippopotamus | #IUCNRedList: Vulnerable | Eradicating the ivory trade will be a tall challenge. Hippo teeth are highly sought after but until the law is enforced on the ground, Hippo fortunes will continue to founder. #Conservation #Environment #Endangered pic.twitter.com/5G5yvAgcc7

The Saiga Antelope is relatively unknown and would look right at home in the #Cantina from @starwars! They are in fact found on the Eurasian Steppe and sadly listed as Critically Endangered on the @IUCNRedList #TheLastJedi #WildlifeConservation @SaigaCA #WednesdayWisdom pic.twitter.com/ITY7GZ4mll

The Blue Throated Macaw is on the brink, with around 250 mature pairs left in the wild.

The Crowned Sifaka #IUCNRedList: Endangered. These animals have an exuberantly sideways pogo with arms flung high for balance.
Unfortunately their homes in the tall Madagascan trees are being destroyed and they only survive in micro pockets. #stopextinction @IUCNRedList pic.twitter.com/jRkhxUM2RH
