I am excited to announce that the new Big Five book, released on April 4th, 2023, will feature some of my photography in the Polar Bear chapter. For those unaware, the New Big Five is a global photography project for endangered wildlife.

THE NEW BIG 5 (Earth Aware Editions; April 4, 2023) brings together more than 165 of the world’s most outstanding wildlife photographers, conservationists, and advocates in a mission not only to celebrate the beauty of the animal world but to raise awareness of the crucial issues facing the world’s wildlife, including habitat loss, the illegal wildlife trade, pollution, and climate change. 

The New Big 5 is a global call to action sounded by some of the foremost conservationists on Earth. The book contains 226 majestic portraits and creative photos of creatures in their natural habitats from 146 globally renowned photographers, including Joshua Holko, Ami Vitale, Marsel van Oosten, Paul Nicklen, Steve McCurry, Karine Aigner, Brian Skerry, Frans Lanting, Marina Cano, Beverly Joubert, Gurcharan Roopra, Thomas Mangelsen, Lucas Bustamante, Suzi Eszterhas, Paul Hilton, Cristina Mittermeier, Gael R. Vande weghe, Daisy Gilardini, Steve Winter, Qiang Zhang, Art Wolfe, Shannon Wild, Will Burrard-Lucas, David Lloyd, Sergey Gorshkov, Jonathan and Angela Scott, Thomas Vijayan, Tony Wu, and many more. 

As well as chapters focusing on each of the New Big 5, the book contains an extensive section on other Endangered species from land, sea and sky, all listed by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as Critically Endangered, Endangered or Vulnerable, including rhinos, cheetahs, giraffes, monkeys, pangolins, snow leopards, bears, frogs, insects, birds, turtles, sharks and whales. 

The book also features essays from leading conservationists, including Jane Goodall, Paula Kahumbu (CEO/Founder, Wildlife Direct), Tara Stoinski (CEO, Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund), Krista Wright (Executive Director, Polar Bears International), Anish Andheria (CEO, Wildlife Conservation Trust), Moreangels Mbizah (Executive Director, Wildlife Conservation Action), Dominique Gonçalves (Manager, Elephant Ecology Project at Gorongosa National Park), and Wes Sechrest (CEO, Re:wild).
