“At risk”. The photographer showed animals facing extinction
MOSCOW, 7 Feb — RIA Novosti. London photographer Tim Flah made a series of pictures of animals under threat of extinction.
The shooting took two years.
The photo shows a saiga, snow leopard, shoebill, Hippo, Philippine eagle, rhinopias and many others. Some of them remained only a few hundred individuals.
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

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

Local people describe the Yunnan snub-nose monkey as their ancestor, calling them ‘wild men of the mountains’. They live at a higher altitude than any primate in the dense bamboo thickets of the Henduan mountains in south-western China. @IUCNRedList: Endangered #WednesdayWisdom pic.twitter.com/49o5HMHaDx

He lives at a higher altitude than any other Primate, in the dense bamboo forests of Handan in the South-West of China. Status in “red book” — “an endangered species”.
All the pictures he collected in the book of Endangered (“In danger”). And in the next two years Flaach will be working on a new photo book dedicated to the birds. According to him, he will photograph the “all, from chickens to eagles.” On his Twitter page he has posted the first photo in this project. It shows the great grey owl.
On #NationalBirdDay here’s a sneak peek at the first image of my proposed bird book. Over the next 2 years I’ll be photographing everything from Chickens to Eagles! Abe is a Great Grey Owl, part of the @LondonFalconry team. Any suggestions of ‘must have’ birds for this book? pic.twitter.com/R9bIH0o2ru
