Endangered: Species behind the lens

World renowned wildlife photographer Tim Flach will join experts from international conservation charity ZSL this November to shine a spotlight on some of the world’s most endangered species at Endangered: Species behind the lens.

The event, celebrating the publication of Tim Flach’s latest project, Endangered (published by Abrams), will tell the story of the species behind some of his most powerful images.

The evening of discussion will explore how the acclaimed photographer captured shots of some of Earth’s rarest animals, from the world’s most illegally trafficked mammal, the pangolin, to the La Palma pupfish (Cyprinodon longidorsalis), now extinct in the wild.

These accounts will be accompanied by the insight of ZSL’s own zoologists and field conservationists, who are working on the ground worldwide to bring these remarkable animals back from the edge of extinction.

Through personal stories and powerful imagery, including images taken within ZSL’s collections and at field sites, the evening will highlight the plight of species across the globe and feature the voices of individuals from across ZSL, from aquarium curator and conservationists to head veterinarian.

A truly unique event exploring the stories of the species behind the images, Endangered: Species behind the lens is unmissable for anyone with a passion for wildlife photography or a love of the natural world.
