New Habitat


Erik Hijweege: "Climate change, poaching and the destruction of natural habitat for commercial ends are the principal drivers behind the near- extinction of many animal species. According to the IUCN there are over 22,000 species on the Red List with a status ranging from vulnerable to critically endangered. Global action is essential to help these  species  survive.

The New Habitat series is about relocating endangered animals to safer grounds.

My Endangered project focused on immortalizing endangered species in ice. New Habitat is taking it a step further, by providing a new and safe environment in which the animals can thrive once more.

Hopefully New Habitat will serve as an inspiration to protect and take care of nature."
