The beautiful images were taken over 18 months and the photographer hopes they will highlight the desperate plight of some of the globe’s most endangered creatures. It is part of a project by photographer Arthur Xanthopoulos to raise awareness of endangered species.
“When people view the images, my hope is that they will see these animals as more than just animals in a zoo and take the time to understand the risks they face due to human encroachment on their habitats,” says the ace photographer.
