"The photograph is part of a collection of animal images depicting species on the brink of extinction featured in Flach's new book, Endangered. By capturing the personalities of the animals, Flach hopes readers will feel an emotional connection and be motivated to help protect them. The striking resemblance to a certain film character doesn't hurt either. We look at this animal, and we think: it looks like Yoda from Star Wars, says Flach." ----The New Scientist
"Combining stylised, deeply emotional portraits of the animals with images taken in their natural habitat, the book aims directly for the heart, highlighting their vulnerability and all-too-delicate existence."----BBC Focus

In Endangered, the result of an extraordinary multiyear project to document the lives of threatened species, acclaimed photographer Tim Flach explores one of the most pressing issues of our time. Traveling around the world—to settings ranging from forest to savannah to the polar seas to the great coral reefs—Flach has constructed a powerful visual record of remarkable animals and ecosystems facing harsh challenges. Among them are primates coping with habitat loss, big cats in a losing battle with human settlements, elephants hunted for their ivory, and numerous bird species taken as pets. With eminent zoologist Jonathan Baillie providing insightful commentary on this ambitious project, Endangered unfolds as a series of vivid, interconnected stories that pose gripping moral dilemmas, unforgettably expressed by more than 180 of Flach’s incredible images.
